CRBA and Passport

Hello, I'm a U.S citizen

I had a son born in Vietnam on June 4th 2015 to my Vietnamese Fiance who has her K1 visa which she received May 6 and expires on September 12 2015. We need to get our son a Passport before my wife's Visa Expires. We have submitted the paperwork for his Vietnamese birth Certificate and they have scheduled an interview for August 21st for receiving his birth certificate. My fiances Visa will Expire By the time we finish with that process and then schedule the appointment with the u.s consulate in Ho Chi Minh city Vietnam to Do his certificate of birth abroad and apply for his passport, I'm desperately searching for any other way or process to get this done before her visa expiration. Since i am a u.s citizen and my son is a citizen by birth is there any other way we could expedite this. If my Fiances Visa expires i would have to start the process for her again and it would take another year and a lot of money. I hope you could help me out with this matter.

***** Moving from US Citizenship to CRBA forum ******

Are you sure the Aug 21st appointment is not your CRBA appointment? I have not heard of a separate interview to review the birthcert, but they may do things differently in Vietnam.

I would suggest you, as the US citizen, contact the embassy. You may be able to get the appointment moved forward, or the K1 extended.

Your wife could pay some coffee money to get the birth certificate faster ;) The birth certificate will be a bit more complicated since you are not married yet. You should be able to extend your K1 visa. Contact your embassy and explain the situation.
