Recommended Posts

Hooray, I got my IR1 visa and plan on flying next month . 

The package that I have to give to the US customs states that i also need to show my birth certificate (it is in Ukrainian language). I have the original but the consulate did not return too me the translated and notarized copy of my birth certificate. Should I have the  translated copy (it is hard to get where I am now) or it will be enough to have just the original and a photocopy  of the translation.

Congratulations, concerning your birth cerrificate translation, in which "oblast" or "gorod" are you that it seems difficult to translate? You may try looking for reputed translating agents online and let them do it and notarize and send via nova poshta to you, you will just need to scan a copy to them and they will do it for you. I know of a reputed translator in Dnipropetrovsk region and they do perect translation and "нотарюсь" too.

Hi. Thanks for the reply. I have one too. But I am in China now  and dont want to have a translation from and photocopy because the consulate did not like the translation from the photocopy. 

I was just wondering if I show them only  photocopy of translation, will it be a problem. 

It is such a pain to get the translation on time here .

I don't think it's likely you'll need the translation at immigration.  The NVC and your consulate have both already certified the document in their issuance of the visa.

Whatever you gave the Consulate in the way of civil documents, including the birth certificate, are INSIDE the package.  Not sure why you think you need a separate birth certificate not already IN that package.
