new passport and birth certificate.

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

my country is affected by poor documentation system, people estimate their age with reference to major events that happened near their birth,such as wars, celebrations etc. so i do not really know my actual birth day, i was told that i was born during the war, i went with 1984, my worry is that i will be just getting my birth certificate soon & i need to change the month in my passport from june to july because that a mistake was made by the passport office while printing, will this affect me some how

does having a new passport and a new birth certificate raise any red flags at k1 interview.

As long as the info on the birth certificate checks with or matches what your new passport reads, you should be okay at the interview....

I had an RFE while Adjusting status a.k.a AOSing.... because my b-cert was newish...they asked for extra proof (anything from before my 16th bday that showed my name, age, parents names etc...) and thank God i had my vintage baptism card,infant immunization card, elementary / primary school report cards ... i was approved after sending copies of those in !

Good luck to you :thumbs:

thank for the response.the problem is that both my parents are dead,& according to the information i received,am actually older than wat i had thought earlier.the guardians who provided information for my earlier documents gave varying age for various documents different for the information i have now.so earlier documents have varying dates of birth different from my passport & birth certificate.it might be funny but very common in this part of the world.the president doesnot know his actually age& birthday
