Original Birth Certificate - Lebanon

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We are currently waiting for our NOA2 hopefully in the next month so we are trying to get our documents ready but does anyone know where to get the "Original" birth certificate in Lebanon? Apparently the birth certificates issued there are kind of scribbled on a prescription-pad- looking note and we want to make sure we get the right document.
