Birth of a U.S. Citizen in Oman

hello VJ family,


I have applied for my wife.s i130 which was approved yesterday but we have a child that was born last week. So i was thinking to apply her birth abroad certificate. I have few questions.


Do i have to be there for the application or my wife can do it if i send her the documents?


While i was doing the application i read that i have to send an affidavit that i was physically present in the USA while she was born but in the last part of the affidavit it said that i have to sign before passport specialist, consular or the person who will handle the application?


I just joined a new company and could not even go see my daughter yet. I was thinking the petition is approved and they should be here in 60 days now. I need this job at the same time so what should i do at this point any feedback will be appreciated.

I suggest having your wife call the US embassy/consulate in Muscat for answers to your questions.




If your wife can process things herself, maybe you don’t have to go. Also, ask the consulate if there’s a way you can authorize her to do the process on your behalf.

“The fact that we are here and that I speak these words is an attempt to break that silence and bridge some
of those differences between us, for it is not difference which immobilizes us, but silence.
And there are so many silences to be broken.”
