Petitioner's Birth Certificate for CR-1

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Members,

I have two questions:

1: Does the Petitioner's Original Birth Certificate is required for CR-1 (Spouse of a US Citizen) visa ? I know that Petitioner's birth certificate is required in IR-5 (Parent of US Citizen) and F-4 (Brothers-Sisters of USC). But I am not sure in CR-1 case......

2: How many photocopies (One or Two Photocopy sets) are required by NVC when sending Original Documents with DS-230 ?

Please clarify.

1: Does the Petitioner's Original Birth Certificate is required for CR-1 (Spouse of a US Citizen) visa ?

The petitioner's birth certificate can be used to establish the petitioner's US citizenship. You would only need to submit a copy of your birth certificate. If you chose not to include a copy of the birth certificate, then you would need to make a copy of all pages of your US Passport in order to establish citizenship.
