Which UK Birth Certificate to Take to Interview?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


My fiance's interview is tomorrow morning and I'm just double checking his paperwork to make sure it's all in order. We got his birth certificate from his mom today and she gave us two separate papers. I'm not sure exactly which one to bring with us. 

One is named "Certified Copy of an Entry" (Pursuan to the Births and Deaths Registration Act 1953.. which is an A4 piece of paper. 

The other is named "Certificate of Birth" and is a pinkish red paper that's much smaller than an A4.

They're both pretty much the same I'm pretty sure the A4 paper is just a typed up version of the smaller paper, as this one is filled in by hand.


Should i just bring both just in case or is one of these the correct one?


Thanks ahead of time. Sorry if this seems like a stupid question I just want to make sure we are prepared!!
