Necessary to submit US petitioner's birth certificate at interview?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My wife resides in the US and is petitioning for me, however our case has been expedited and we bypassed NVC so now the immigrant visa unit at embassy in London is processing our case.

I was under the impression that since I am the only person applying for an immigrant visa, that only my birth certificate will be required, however this page confuses me>> http://london.usembassy.gov/interview_documents.html

It says first of all : Please obtain the original documents or certified copies, and one photocopy, for yourself and each family member applying for an immigrant visa.

and then says : Birth Certificate: Obtain the original, or certified copy, of the birth record of each family member (yourself, your spouse, and all unmarried children under the age of 21, even if they are not immigrating with you

I already sent the DS-2001 to say I'm ready for interview and have all documents and am waiting for an interview date, so I'm a little worried.

Thanks

Only the birth certificate of the visa applicant(s). There are cases where whole families are getting visas together, and that paragraph is addressing them as well as single people or a mother and child. Example: A work visa where husband's employer is petitioning. The whole family gets a visa to come to the US. The whole family has to have a passport.
