Korean birth/death certificates

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

We will be getting married soon and I have started looking over the forms needed for her AOS. I will need my fiancees birth certificate and the death certificate of her first husband. However, she is from Korea and they don't have birth and death certificates but instead have a family registry. Will this do?

Thanks,

John

I'm from Taiwan, and we do not have a birth certificate, either.

My mother in Taiwan went to the hospital I was born to request a copy my birth record. I also have the family registry thing with me here.

Just have somebody translate the whole birth record (at least containing parents' names, your wife's name, date of birth for all names on the form).

The translator needs to put something like "he or she is fluent in both languages."

You also need to have a public notary to notarize it.

Then it is official.

I sent my package in at the end of August, and my interview is scheduled for November. Seems like there was no problem with a birth certificate like that.

Good luck on everything!

"Ho Jeok Deung Bon", family registry is OK. You need to get it translated and notarized. You can order a copy on line and pay for translation/notarization and shipping with CC, and they will mail it to you in US. Good Luck.
