copy of the certified copy of birth certificate

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiancée has three certified copies of her birth certificate. For the interview I advised that she copy one of the certified copies, give the non-certified copy the day before the interview (during document intake at Guangzhou), and then take one certified copy with her during the interview the next day. That way they can ask to look at the certified copy if they want during the interview, and after everything's over she'll still have three certified copies.

Does this sound reasonable and have others done this? I want her to have as many certified copies as possible to bring with her to the US.

It is very likely they are going to want the orginal to keep during the interview, they may even insist on it at document intake but the final decision is with the VO at the interview the next day. I believe she will need at least one more copy for AOS after entry on the K-1. You will want one to keep so that is the three copies you have. They typically cost about 300 RMB each so you might want her to have a couple more copies made just in case. Once you are in the US, getting more will be really difficult.

However, I would think her green card and/or passport should be sufficent for proof of birthdate/place for non-immigration related matters - driver's license, insurance, etc.

IMO, they want to keep the certified version, that notarial translation, white book.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
