Hi everyone, I was issued 221g white slip on my interview for not having my original birth certificate. I am a Canadian citizen and I don't have my original birth certificate with me. I thought the copy will work but unfortunately they really need the original one. I don't know where my original BC gone. My birthplace is nepal, so I asked someone to make a birth certificate for me from nepal municipality office. He got the birth certificate from that office a d send it to me through someone. Then I send the birth certificate to montreal consulate on the same day. I regularly check the ceac website for my visa status and after around 6 weeks they changed my status to refused. I was so worried and send them an email but no response at all for whole week. Later they said that they refused my visa under INA section (a) (6) © (i) and eligible for waiver. I don't know how long do I need to wait more. Please let me know if anybody went through same case like mine.

That sounds like you got a material missrepresentation charge, which is very serious.

When you say someone "made" a birth cert for you, did you bribe someone? Or did they go to the real office in Nepal and get a real birth cert?

Please be very clear so we can help you.

What do you mean they 'made' a birth certificate for you? What exactly was the misrepresentation that happened?

Good luck

Thanks for your quick response. I asked someone in nepal who know someone else who make those doc. Everytime when we make doc in nepal we need to pay for it. Without paying nothing works in nepal. I don't know if they make fake but they had made for others where they hadn't had any problem.

This is how you should have gotten your "birth certificate"


Was this followed or did someone just make one for you?

It generally costs money to get these kinds of documents. Even as a Canadian citizen I had to pay vital statistics in BC, Canada to issue me a certified copy of my birth certificate.
