Hi! I had my interview at US embassy Tokyo like 2 months ago and the consular questioned my 10 years late registered birth certificate. Ive been told to order birth certificate online and send it straight to them but I found out that I have two birth certificate records and PSA will not release my late registered birth certificate that Ive been using since i was a kid. I don't know what to tell the US embassy or exactly what to do. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Did you ask PSA how you can get your records corrected and how you can get your correct certificate?

They suggest to cancel my first birth certificate. I just dont know what to do with US embassy

 

You will need your "current" birth certificate (that matches the name the petition has in it) to make the embassy happy.   

 

You need to get the old BC cancelled if that is what PSA told you ..  can your parents handle this for you?   This would need to be initiated at the local registry.

Based from stories i heard it will take a few months. Just gave my mom SPA and she's coming to Pinas to try to fix it. I wonder if the embassy would be ok waiting or should i explain them..

Is there a time frame noted on the 221g?    I know of some with embassy in Manila that have taken a fews months to complete the document request.

 

Contacting the embassy is almost like a trick question, I would want to keep them informed if it takes too long, but not sure I would want to explain too much of the situation either.    😕

What is 221g? That's my problem I dont know exactly what to do. I have to be in America before my medical expires or unless I have to do it again. Im not sure about the expiration from the time of interview though.

221g is the letter/email from the embassy  requesting the new birth certificate from PSA

 

If the process takes too long you will have to complete a 2nd medical.
