Notarizing my passport, how?

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I hope I get an answer in this topic forum because seems so dead lol. Anyways, for evidence of both me and my wife being in the same place at same time for time of conception of our daughter they said we can present our passports. I will not be present at the interview and also need my passport for something else. They state that you can notarize your passport if it's not present.

 

My question is: do I need to copy every single page of my passport, even the blank ones? Also I heard that notaries are not allowed to notarize the passport but only a statement from the owner that it is a true and correct copy and are notarizing my signature instead. Thanks!

I’m still confused on how you notarizing your passport copy proves you and your wife were at the same place for conception? Who is asking for notarization?

Yeah I wouldn't call it strong proof or anything, but it's on their checklist. Exit/entry stamps and such at least prove I'm in the same country. 

 

Also, the checklist is asking for the notarization. Page 3 under "Blood Relationship."

You don't need it notarized. make a photocopy of each page from and back including the cover.  If you are trying to prove you were together, you can submit photos and proof of travel to show you were together.

Yeah I got plenty of pictures. Before, during, and after the birth of our child. 

 

My passport does have stamps, both entry and exit stamps along with stickers from the bureau of immigration in the philippines stating I was extending my tourist visa there. 

 

On page 3, under "blood relationship" on the CRBA checklist it states you must notarize the passport. Not trying to dispute you, I am just saying where I got those requirements from. But sounds like I need to make a copy of every page to account for the entire breadth of my passport as if it were the original. Thanks.

Ok so its’s asking for notarized copy if not the actual passport. So it’s simple.

1. Make a copy of all pages of your passport.

2. Get it notarized by a notary. All pages to be notarized even blank ones.

 

Go to a notary and he/she will have solutions to notarize the copies. They may or may not ask you to sign each copy.

Thank you so much. I sure hope I don't get charged for every page lol. But some banks do it for free so maybe I'll be ok.

Notaries fees are per signature not per service and they will sign each page. So yeah likely for each page. Minimum is what $2 per signature. Good luck.

 

yeah banks or post office do provide free notary service. Good luck in getting free service for all of you passport pages without getting 👁👁 or 🙄 look.

 

which passport you got? I hope the 28 pages one and not the 52 page book.

Haha, pretty sure it's the 28 page one. I know, when I called my bank about free notary service they didn't exactly seem thrilled about even doing a free notary. Anyways $2 each signature isn't bad. Thanks man, really appreciate your feedback.
