Dear all,

Im leaving for the US in 3 weeks. Me and my girl are planning to get engaged and start filling the I-129F together while I am in the US (on a 2 month vacation visit).

I've been reading about the birth certificate and im getting kinna confused. Do I (the foreign national) need to bring a Birth certificate?

So is it only required for the US citizen to enclose a Birth certificate with the I-129F or also the foreign citizien?

Thanks in advance :)

I read the guide.

Copy of the Birth certificate (front and back) for the US Citizen or a copy of ALL pages of the US Citizen's passport issued with a validity of at least 5 years or a copy of the US Citizen's naturalization certificate (front and back). This is used to establish citizenship.

But I've been reading that they want the birth certificate also from the alien fiance?

Is that information false?

No, it is true. Also, it must be translated into English.


Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.

Thank you!

Maybe the guide should be updated then, cause it doesnt say it in there.

Lets clarify this once and for all!

The I129f - only the USC petitioner is required to submit a birth certificate.

After the petition has been approved and the beneficiary applies for the visa at the consulte - THEN the petitioner will need to provide their birth certificate (and also the petitioners!)

Translation may or may not be required at the consulate - that is a consulate specific requirement. (We did not have to have the BC translated at interview in VN)

However you WILL need to have the BC translated when you file AOS after getting married in the US.

OK - Hope that straightens that out!

Thank you! That will safe me a trip towards the courthouse.

(still strange that people say that you should enclose it with the I-129F because it might help)
