Do I need to authenticate Civil Documents for NVC stage?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We are currently waiting for our case number in the NVC, and we have started to gather the paperwork that needs to be uploaded to CEAC. 

Do the police records and birth certificate of the beneficiary need to be authenticated and have an apostille stamp? Or can I just upload the documents alone without the extra stuff? So confused, I browsed around to see if I could find an answer, but couldn't find much.  I'm the beneficiary, and from Honduras, if that makes any difference. Thank you!

No additional authentication such as apostille is required

No apostille is necessary.  The tricky part in Honduras is the format.  You can send the regular one with the petition no problem, but later for NVC and the interview you need the Folleto de Nacimientos.  

 

Many people confuse the police clearances.  People can get one in a city other than Tegucigalpa for work or school purposes, but these don’t work for the Embassy.  It must come from DPI in Tegucigalpa.

 Thank you! I was aware that the records have to come from the DPI, I'm picking up the folio today, I was just wondering if I need an auténtica for it to upload in CEAC. Also, did you translate to English? I'm unsure if this is necessary, I seem to find conflicting information.
