Certifying, Translating Docs..

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. 

 

I hope someone can help me. I am currently in Vietnam right now getting the papers ready for my wife and I. 

 

I need to translate notarized letters from friends, letter from wife, translate Marriage Certificate, and translate scan of Passport, ID, etc of my wife. I am just confused on the process...because I was told to make photocopies of each document, but the photocopies need to be certified. 

 

What is the process and steps for this? Do I make photocopies of each documents first, get them certified, then get them translated to English? 

 

Thank you for your help. This process is making me very stressed and confused.

I'm filing the CR-1 in the States. Everything needs to be certified and translated. 

Translation of original or certified documents but the accompanied  translation only requires an attestation not certification.   The photocopy itself doesn't need certification

hi I just want to make sure I have the process right. 

 

I can just get my documents translated and make photocopies of those and send it in? No certification is needed at all? 

 

Or does this step make more sense: Make copy of original, certify, then translate. 

 

Thank you.

First one, no need to certify a photocopy

For USCIS, no certification. There is no such thing as certification in the US anyway. You send in a copy of the original document, for example, a  birth certificate and if that document is not in English, then send in the English translation. That's it. The only requirement is the translator has to sign a statement like "I am fluent in both languages, English and Vietnamese, and I am competent to translate."

 

For the HCMC, the beneficiary brings the originals of all documents, in Vietnamese.
