Do I need legalized Birth Certificate?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I finally started translating all my documents for the interview.

On the letter from the embassy they stated that the docs have to be translated only, they do not need them legalized.

However, I was wondering if on a later stage a legalized translated copy of my Birth Certificate will be needed?

My problem is that if it is needed, I will have to get a new BC which will take forever, as mine is "too old to be legalized" =/

Help, please :(

You will not need a legalized translation of your birth certificate, unless someone other than USCIS requests it from you.

Remember to add this http://www.visajourn...nt/translations at the end of your translation.

When it comes to the Birth Certificate being legalized, you would have to check with the Embassy and see what they request from the Bulgarian consulate. If they take long, you may want to go get a new one, today.

If it translated by sworn translator, it should be fine.

I got an international birth certificate from my civil registry office, everything is shown in English and French as well. Maybe that is available in your country as well?

L + T, I've never heard of something like that.. I have to check.

And as to the phrase to be added to the translations - isn't this for the petition only and not the interview?

Well, in theory, for the interview you won't need translations; unless your interview will be help at a different consulate other than the one in your home country.

You will need translations for AOS (after you get married).
