Yes! I am an Egyptian and I got this new BC .. he will need to go to Abbaseya in Cairo "this is the only place in Egypt to get the new BC" he will need his national ID and his mother's name in English like in her passport. It costs 150 EGP! 

Good luck in your interview!

  Hi Nody,

          Can you give any more details on where to go to get the new BC in Cairo?  El-Abbaseya is what exactly?  Is this a new requirement, since the information that is on the state department webpage says "Procedure for Obtaining: Egyptian birth certificates may be obtained from the local Public Health Office of the Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs with jurisdiction over the place the birth occurred."  To me that means you could get it locally.   I mean for a BC that is in both Arabic and English.

Al-Abbaseya is a very famous building to get any civil documents you need. The easiest way to go there is to take the subway to Al-Abbaseya. Go to this building then count 3 or 4 buildings you will find an orange building, tell them that you need the translation section, go to the 3rd floor. All you need is the national ID and the mother's name exactly as in her passport. It costs 150 EGP and you will get it. It's one document in Arabic and English..

The same for the new marriage certificate, but for the marriage certificate they need the Arabic marriage certificate, your names in English and your mothers names in English.

If you want to notarize them from the foreign affairs you should go to the main building there to the officer to sign and stamp onn the back then you can notarize them..

So I am a born and raised American US citizen and my parents are full Egyptian American from 40 plus years and my wife lives in Egypt and I got to where the NVC didn’t approve my marriage certificate and my wife birth certificate. What are the steps that I need to take and do I need her go to the US embassy for any approval or stamps or notarization?

Which marriage and birth certificates did the NVC reject ?

I uploaded the bilingual certificates and they were approved..

I got my marriage certificate notarized from the embassy but never used it cause the only accepted one is the bilingual.. 

If she lives in Cairo I can tell you how I got them..
