Birth certificate translation - 10+ years old?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all!


We will be starting our CR-1 journey early next year, but I'm just doing some preliminary research.


My partner is from New Zealand and emigrated from Russia when he was a teenager. He had his birth certificate translated in English (certified) when he came over to New Zealand, but the translation is dated 2005.


My potentially silly question is: Is this certified translation still valid? Will he need to get it retranslated? My gut answer is no (it's not like his birth has changed in the last 13 years), but I just thought I'd ask you guys to see if anyone has any similar experiences.


Thanks in advance!

No need but that BC won't be needed until the NVC stage of the process.
