Is the Birth certificate legalization (apostille) required?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I'm Mirella from Venezuela and just read from an old document of the Caracas embassy that  birth certificates of k1 beneficiaries should be legalized (Hague apostille). Since is an old document, I'd like to confirm this. It's very hard to get the Hague apostille in Venezuela, so I want to be sure that it is needed.

You do not need to do that, before I went to the interview in Caracas I legalized my birth certificate ,but it didnt matter they just took the original one from my regular court house. They just mark on ur birth certificate the important things such as your name, mother and father names that is. Anyway you can go to the courthouse where you were registered when you was born( the one where you get your birth certificate) so you have it current. But there’s no need to legalize that or apostille.

Thanks, how long did you have your interview? Another question, how long it took for your medical exam results to be ready? I work a very demanding job with a foreign company and I need to plan my schedule very well sometimes with months in advance.So I need to plan everything even if is based on predictions.

Ok after I got the  ready!! on National visa center website I went straight to schedule my interview. Then I chose the closest day for my interview which was a month and ten days later. After that I went to the embassy and got my interview. I spent about 4 hrs there since it was full of people.

 

My medical examinations took 2 weeks to get back so after you schedule your appointment call inmidiately one of the docs to schedule your exams cause they take 2 weeks and sometimes even 3. I got lucky that mine were ready a day before I  went to my interview.

Thank you I'll take that into consideration. I travel between Venezuela and other countries often and I have to visit at least 4 countries in early 2019 so I have to be very careful in how to plan everything because it could cost thousands to my company if I mess up 😅. Any other advice or tips you can give me are welcome.

Be always ahead of things dont wait for the last minute, when u get your case approved it will take around 1 to 2 weeks to be ready on NVC page so after that make the appointment for the embassy and then call the doctor right away since it take like 3 to a months to go and get your examination 😬
