Is birth certificate of USC needed?

5 posts in this topic

My husband only has his US passport, is that enough? We want to send the packet ASAP but not sure if we should wait and request for the birth certificate? On the USCIS website, they listed both documents, but I'm not sure if they are interchangeable.

 

Thank you!

Read carefully again and I think you'll see the word "or".  Either is fine.  There is no need for both.  Copy all pages of the passport, even the empty ones.

In Juarez, the embassy asks for the petitioner’s birth certificate and the beneficiary’s birth certificate.  I’ve seen people here get denied due to not having both certificates. 

 

They are are cracking down on citizens born to midwives. There are cases where children from Mexico were crossed into a border state after birth and then a midwife was payed off to say the baby was born in the USA.

 

To the best of my knowledge Juarez embassy does not accept passports as proof of citizenship. If the birth certificate shows the citizen was born to a midwife in the USA, the consulate seems to be putting these cases into AP and investigating the citizens birth. . A passport is not enough for them when it comes to proving citizenship. 

 

If the petitioner is a resident then the LPR card will suffice. If the petitioner is a naturalized citizen, then the certificate of citizenship will suffice. 

 

I am assuming you are asking for the petitioners birth certificate. I am also assuming all embassies are doing what Juarez seems to be doing. I am not sure about your specific case.

 

 

EDIT:

I saw your are submitting the packet to uscis. In that case the passport is enough proof of citizenship. Sorry.
