Hi everyone, my USC fiance and I are applying for a marriage license in my country, Vietnam. We're expecting to get the license by the end of November. He's in Vietnam right now and will come back to the US at the end of the month when we get the license. I want to prepare as many documents as possible on my end so that he can take it with him to the US for the I-130 package.

 

My main question is: Do we have to get a notarized translation copy of the marriage license? Do we have to get the translation copy or original copy legalized by the embassy? I read that I don't need to go through an agency for this but want to double check. If you can point me to a link from the US government's website, that would be greatly appreciated as well. There are services in my country where they would translate then notarize that translation copy.

 

Thank you!

You have to have it translated in English. It does not have to be notarized or through an official agency, but it does need to have a statement by the translator certifying that they are fluent in both languages and 100% accurate.

Yes and it would be a "marriage certificate" not a "marriage license". 

 

Note, you will not be "bringing him back" shortly after marrying in Vietnam.  It's a 12 to 15 months process currently.
