Translating documents for marriage in Cuba

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

So, I have a question for anyone who has gotten married in Cuba or who is in the process of getting your documents certified, authenticated, and translated. I have gotten my divorce decree, birth certificate, and affidavit of single status certified as true by my Secretary of State, as well as authenticated by the US State Department. I am now getting those documents translated into Spanish.

 

As far as I was aware, I only needed to translate the papers that stated my documents were certified and authenticated - not the actual document itself (i.e. the actual birth certificate, divorce decree, etc). Can anyone validate me on this? Or do I need to have my entire divorce decree, birth certificate, and affidavit of single status translated in addition to the certificates of authentication? Any insight on this would be super helpful.

 

Thanks!! ❤️

It is required that I get my certified and authenticated documents translated in Spanish so that they can be authorized by the Cuban consulate.

Ohhhhh I see. Have you tagged "Cuba" on your post so ppl from that country's forum can answer? This really doesnt have much to do with immigration that anyone other than fellow Cuban Spousal Visa applicant would be able to answer because your answer is dependent on the process in Cuban prior to the immigration process.

Thanks for that suggestion. I am still trying to figure out how to make posts on this website. Thanks again.

You need to have the documents themselves translated as well. It is a requirement. The notaria made sure I had that when we applied for our marriage license in 2016.
