Need help in filling up information using native alphabet

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiancee is in the midst of filling up the K1 petition, and asked me for my name and address in native alphabet. I am totally clueless and need to ask for some advices.

I am a singaporean chinese and my first language is English. Mandarin is my second language but i am not really well versed at writing chinese words, although i converse occasionally.

All of my personal documents like birth certificate, ID, passport and any available records are in English.

However i found out that i do have 3-word chinese written name on my birth certificate beside my english name for record purposes during my birth, and i had never used my chinese name on the rest of my personal documents since then.

Do i need to provide under the K1 visa part that says name in native alphabet?

I think i am not able to translate my address in chinese properly, as we do not write addresses in chinese here.

Any help from anyone?

I don't have no idea about this so I'd advice you try posting this on Asia: East and Pacific Sub-regional forum to get a more knowledgeable answer to your question. Good luck

Is English an official language of your country? If so, there is no problem. It sounds as though it may be. For example a Canadian would not have to write their name in English and French (French uses a similar alphabet with accents)

aiyo.

is 4 official languages used by the government in Singapura.

that birth certificate will bite you, as all the rest of yer stuff resembles English or pinyin, all in roman characters,

so

I say include the long form (from the birth certificate) , mix with Mandarin and English characters, in that block,

then use yer SG ID card name for the rest of stuff.

for addresses (I lived in SG for a year...) - is no chinese address that's useful - as SingPost is standardized on English Characters for postal addresses.

Good Luck ! Have a curry laksa this sunday, I'm sweating just thinking about it !

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