G-325A Father birthday unknown

Hi All,

My fiance, the beneficiary, is filling out her G-325A form. Her father knows the year that he was born but he does not know the month or the day. We are wondering what the best way would be to address this on the part of the form that asks for his date of birth?

This may require a Vietnam specific answer. All I can suggest at this point is to go ahead and list the year and attach a statement that says the month and date are not known. If a person doesn't know certain information and there is no record available, then that person doesn't know.

i had the same problem. just put the year. assuming 1900 was the birth year, in the box, enter "/1900", without quotes. It will say error or something, but it should take, at least mine did.

when we were filling out G-325A, my wife's father also had exact problem. We put down 1/1/Year. We did not get RFE and VN consulate never asked about it. We made sure it was consistent on all the forms. I guess you can say we were lucky they never brought it up. They can make a fuss about it asking for birth certificate.

Yeah, I wouldn't put 1/1 if birth day and month are unknown, just leave the day and year blank.

Thanks everyone for your responses. I think I am leaning toward Ryan H's suggestion of putting the year down and then attaching a statement that we do not know that exact date. I feel nervous about leaving it blank. My second choice would be to just pick a date but I don't like the idea very much. Neither her mother or her father have birth certificates so I hope that this does not end up getting asked for.

Later on at the interview, the bereficiary will have to submit her family registration book (Ho Khau). Just put in her Dad BD according to how it appears in the Ho Khau. You can further clarify it with an accompanied note, and you won't have any problem as long as you are consistent.

Thanks Ronnie and Hang, I will check with Hiep to see if they have a Ho Khau. She has mentioned that her father has identification but it only has the year on it. I am glad that you brought up the Ho Khau so that we will make sure and have it when we need it at the interview. :)

I hand-wrote the year only and have no problem with NVC. My wife's father ID and Ho Khau has only year (1952) so I wrote "1952" on all the requested forms.

That makes me feel a lot better and less worried about it. I appreciate the help and sharing of your experience.

We left that box empty when we filled out the form on the computer, and filled it in by hand with only the year. We didn't provide any explanation letter. It was never an issue.
