To all of you that have had interviews in HCMC. Did they require the Birth Certificate of the Petitioner?

I had asked this question earlier but I didn't ask in the Vietnam specific forum.

I have copies of my Passport, Passport Card, Sentri Pass, and Social Security Card.

No Birth Record. Im having a delay getting another one because of adoption and name change. I will resubmit the application for a birth record but I do not think it will arrive in time. Her interview is the 27th of October!

I appreciate your response, I was following the VJ guidelines for k-1 visa. But The US consulate web page for HCMC states that the petitioner submit An original birth record as well as a copy.

I am hoping to hear from someone who has been through the interview process in HCMC.

They do asked original BC for both petitioner and beneficiary.

10. How can I obtain my birth certificate? In case I cannot obtain my birth certificate, what can I do?

Individuals born in Vietnam who need new copies of their Vietnamese birth certificate need to contact the office of the People's Committee of the district where they were born: the district where their mother was then resident according to her house book (Ho Khau). The district People's Committee can issue certified copies of a birth certificate (Ban Sao) based on their records of the original birth certificate. Alternatively, the office may provide an Extract (Trich Luc) of the information in the birth record on file in their office. If you are unable to obtain a birth certificate because records have been destroyed or the government will not issue one, you must obtain a statement to that effect from the civil registrars office and submit secondary evidence of birth. Secondary evidence of birth can be old family household registrations, school records, or baptismal certificates.

14. I am unable to submit a document that your office requested. What should I do?

If you are unable to provide information requested by the interviewing officer, you should submit a letter explaining the circumstances that prevent you from complying with the request. After you submit the letter, a consular officer will review your case file.

They never asked for mine. I did make a copy of my US passport and Naturalization Cert but none was needed at the time of interview.

Turns out they did not ask for the Birth Certificate! We had a complete packet and lots of proof of our ongoing relationship. My passport copies, and My passport card original in the packet.

Where did you meet?

When did you meet?

When did you visit in person?

easy questions, easy interview. The Medical held us up for 2.5 months, but now all is cleared and we have our Visa.
