Does He Need Copy of Birth Certificate

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We have completed the K-1 process and fiancee has his visa. He is flying next week and we were wondering if he needs to bring a copy of his birth certificate with him to the United States? If so, can it be the simple version or does it need to be the long legalized version?

Thanks in Advance.

You never know when a person will need to produce a copy of their official birth certificate. You have to ask yourself, how easy will it be to obtain such a document in the future, as opposed to now?

Good luck on your immigration journey.

Best to bring the legalized version which will be needed in the future at some point.

You will almost certainly need a certified copy of his birth certificate after he arrives (for example- we had to provide this to get my fiance a social security number & card). Better to get the long version that lists both parent's names if you can now while he's still in country. Congrats on the K1 and happy travels!

Yes, over and over again for everything you do in the US

can't even get a driving license or bank account without it

Well this may be state dependent. I did not need to provide my birth certificate for anything in the USA, including bank accounts, driver's license, or SSN.

However for the OP it may be needed for the AOS or future documents or needs so it's better to have it, as full and complete as you can get it, than not. Bring everything. Hopefully the move is permanent so don't leave anything behind.

Congratulations!!! I have a question... What happens to the one used for interview?? Do they keep this one?

they kept it. I believe it becomes a part of his immigration packet. Not sure though.

Well this may be state dependent. I did not need to provide my birth certificate for anything in the USA, including bank accounts, driver's license, or SSN.

However for the OP it may be needed for the AOS or future documents or needs so it's better to have it, as full and complete as you can get it, than not. Bring everything. Hopefully the move is permanent so don't leave anything behind.

Got it.
