USSR Birth Certificate

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

Could you please advise if birth certificate (original) which was issued back in USSR is valid for interview? Because my country offers a document which replaces it and "makes" me born in Latvia. But I presume my original should be ok..

 

Also, does the translation need to be certified by notary? And is there an expiration day for translation? (i.e if i need to do it once again after 6 months or so)

 

Thank you in advance.

 DZIMŠANAS APLIECĪBA (title of the document normally is provided both in Russian and Latvian if issued during the Soviet era)

Translation needs to be attested to but notarization is not required.  Since the BC does not have an expiration date, the translation does not either

So if I understood correctly it is enough if I just translate it (I am planning to give it to translation company) ? And thank you for confirming that it is there is no expiration day for translation! it make things a bit easier .

Yes, the translation company needs to "attest" that they are fluent in both languages.

Hi. I was born in former Yugoslavia and my birth certificate is transfered to Serbia where I grew up, but at the interview they asked for original birth certificate from the country I was born in. Both countries were part of Yugoslavia once. I don't know if that is related to your situation. I didn't have to translate anything because same language is spoken in both.

I will need to translate mine as most probably my interview will not be in Latvia as i reside in different country. But, yes , my guess was right and i will need original bc. Thank you for your input!
