Place of birth - Big issue?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello again all visajourney members!

So, when my fiance and I filed our I-129F I thought "place of birth" meant the actual town your were born in. So that's what I answered on all those questions regarding myself. But I read somewhere that it's where your parents were registered (lived) when you were born, which in my case is NOT the same town.

We're getting all the papers together now to prepare for my interview and I'm just worrying (as usual) that this might be a problem at some point.

At the moment I'm preparing duplicate forms one with my first answer and then one with where my parents where living. In case they ask for either one I'll be prepared, right? But which one should I use?

I just feel kind of stupid and don't really know what to do! Will this be an issue? What should I do?

In my birthcertificate and passport my place of birth is the town my parents where living in when I was born, so does that take presidence somehow? Guess I should've thought of checking that earlier...

Please help a stressed out Swede? :bonk:

You should put what it says on your birthplace and passport. If they ask questions, then you can explain.

I meant birth certificate and passport. Sorry

You should have put what is on your birth cert.

Assuming the two towns are in the same country, considering you already got NOA2 and as Sweden isn't high fraud, they will probably ask you about it at interview but it may not be a huge issue. Bring along a fresh set of forms with the "correct" (as per birth cert) town in case they want it, but I wouldn't bring it up unless they do.
