Hi all,

So I have an issue with the checklist I recieved on Sep 23, 2014 saying I forgot to put N/A on my AOS form and that they need "original" birth & marriage certificate in Farsi.

I had sent them the copied of translated copy but they said they wanted the original translated copy with original birth and original marriage certificate.

Has anyone send their original documents that is not in english?

What if they loose them?

This is fraustrating cuz NVC site says: originals OR translated copies!

Thanks in advace

We were able to get certified original copies from the Mexican government. These are the same as originals, and that is what we sent in. They do absolutely need the original, or certified originals. NVC does not work with copies.

I have heard that when you interview, you can get the originals back. I am not 100% sure in all countries that this is true.

good luck, I'm sure others will respond with other information I may not be aware of.

Thanks Hikerwa,

When you say "certified originals" do you mean translated marriage and birth certificates?

I send the certified true translated of both marriage and birth certificated after I got the checklist on Oct 17th but now I'm starting to worry that they want the original birth/marriage certificate in Farsi which they might loose!

I'm in panic mode!

Cuz if I get the second checklist after 60 days then I will loose my mind :(

We got replacement originals from the Mexican government in spanish, and then had them translated to english. We went to the Government offices in the state capitol to get these.

You have to send the originals in Farsi, I have heard you can get them back at the interview, but we have not had our interview, so I don't know for sure about that.

Good luck!
