Beneficiary has no birth certificate

My fiance was born in her village and does not have a birth certificate obviously. She has the family book, passport, etc. Do we show up to the interview and explain that she doesn't have one because she did not receive one at birth? The information from the embassy is a bit confusing on how to deal with it.

Also, as a side note, does anyone know how to get the police record? What government office do you need to get that from? She is in Sapa so I suspect she'll need to get it in Lao Cai, but we can't figure out where. Is this something we can get far in advance while we wait for our NOA2?

Hi Frideriksen,

If ur fiancee doesn't have birth certificate she should bring her Family book & Passport/ ID go to her City/ward People's committees to ask for re-issue Birth certificate.

About the police record if she didn't assrested by Police or Jail don't need police record , The Consolate just need the original Justice Check #2 only , that paper is issued by City department of Justice .

I think that may helpfull for you . CHEERS

Police record # 2 is required for anyone. Nobody can tell whether you got arrested without seeing the police report.

That report is obtained at Department of Justice( Sở Tư Pháp) in her province.

A little coffee money will go a long way in Vietnam, especially when dealing with the bureaucrats. **hint** **hint**.

haha, oh I know!

I just remember reading that the birth certificate isn't really required if you can explain why you were never issued one. She obviously has a valid reason. Was just hoping someone had gone through the process without having one.

Obtaining a replacement birth certificate should be straight forward via the people's committee office (along with the requisite fee). My wife's sister was able to order and pick up her replacement birth certificate in her home province. As long as you pay the fee and don't present ID that is obviously not you, I get the sense they really don't care. At least, in the south. I don't expect Sapa to be any different (aside...that's a really pretty place, want to go someday).

Good luck!

Thanks! Everyone keeps saying replacement birth certificate, but she's never had one to begin with since she was born in a small village. It's possible to get one? I guess that makes sense that you can.

I imagine there is a way to obtain a birth certificate, assuming you are willing to pay a bit extra. The lack of a birth certificate isn't uncommon in rural areas (some people won't even know the exact day they were born). My only suggestion is for her to go to the people's committee office and ask. Someone from Vietnam (who has been through this) would be much more help though.

She can get one and I would suggest that you do as posted by other and go get it. It is best to go through the hassle now then when you get denied a visa until you produce a document. The consulate knows that this document can be had and will wonder if there is a possible other reason that she can't get one like maybe fraud.

Thanks for all the help everyone! She managed to get (2!) sealed copies of her birth certificate same day.

Hi, I just wanted to know if anyone in vietnam can assist me on on getting a birth certicate. I also was born in a small village where I never received a birth certificate. I need my birth certicate as I applied for my green card in usa.

Much appreciated if anyone out there can help me in this as I have no relatives or know anyone in vietnam. All my family is back in canada.
