Two dates of birth

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband has two sources that show two different dates of birth. His Honduras ID card says one date 12/26/87 and his birth of records show 11/26/87

I am not sure how that happened, but when we filled out his application we put down the 12/26/87 date, that was on his Honduras ID card. Also his passport shows 12/26/87. 

Could this cause the Embassy to deny him his visa? He said he didn't know which one was his date. I know he was born in a small village inside the home, and his mom has not kept him records. He had to travel to his birth state to obtain his birth record for our marriage. I am worried that the different dates will cause an automatic rejection to his visa. Any ideas about this?

 

Thanks

I don't think it will cause an automatic rejection but they may ask him to fix either one of the documents. How about this: is it easy to get a passport in Honduras? Can he get a new passport before his interview and tell them to correct the birth date on the new passport, with proof as the birth certificate? I don't think the Embassy cares about the Honduras ID. 

 

Also, does your husband know how cold it gets in Iowa? Is he out of his mind?

 

Just kidding, I live in Cedar Rapids , so it's nice to see another Iowan on VJ.

First of all....how cool!! You live in CR. I actually am in that area a lot. My mom lives between Ames and CR. My husband wants to be in the cold weather. I tell him he is crazy and he will not like it after a couple of years. 

 

That is a great idea to have my husband get a new passport with the correct information. And he will need a new passport because I am sure his visa will have the correct birth date from his birth record. However, will that cause issues with the fact that the application has the other date of birth? 

 

I am thinking that I need to have him go ahead and get a new passport.

Yeah, he is out of his mind. I woke up this morning and it was below freezing already, not very happy.

Yes, plus he won't have to worry about renewing the passport in the US for a while, probably it's good until after he becomes a US citizen.

If anybody asks, you can always tell the truth, you didn't know and always thought it was that date because it's on the Honduras ID but when you obtained the birth certificate, then realized it's this date....

I don’t think it means a rejection by any means.  I’ve seen other people with wrong data and no one got a rejection because of it.  Possibly they caught it early on and used the submitted birth certificate date anyway.  I would get everything to match but don’t stress.

 

My husband thought his first time in 50 degree weather was horrible!  I have family in Des Moines and he asked in June why we don’t live there.  We’ll go back in January to answer that!😂😂.   He also was amazed by how much longer and shorter days are with the seasons.

I concur, that if he can get a new passport with a date of birth that matches his birth certificate, that will solve any problem.  His ID card is never asked for.

Thank you! I am not stressing out as much now. I actually just remembered that the only document that had November as his birthday was not even submitted because it was not one of the documents on the list for the Embassy. Every document they required from us has the birth date of 12/26 which is on his application. I think I can breathe now. 

 

How is he adjusting to the American life? Weather and cultural? OOHH...Iowa in January can be brutal..lol. I keep telling my husband he will be thinking twice about wanting to be in cold weather once he is here.

Thank you! After much stress, I just now realized that the one document that has a different birthday than 12/26 was not even submitted because they did not ask for it. 

 

Every other document has a birthdate of 12/26 so we are good. Now we just need the Dr. to send my husbands medical exam to the embassy so they can finish the process. 

 

Thanks again.

He is adjusting well overall.  The heavy Mexican population here means he can navigate more freely in some cases but he doesn’t want it to slow down learning English.  I’m in Phoenix so it’s not as cold as where you are. I grew up in Des Moines, with a set of grandparents in Ames.

 

He’s not a huge fan of American food but overall likes it. He missed Honduran food a lot the first year. It also was hard for meal planning because he didn’t know what a lot of dishes were.  Asking “what would you like to eat?” wasn’t helpful.  He’s not a fan of Mexican food as it’s not similar in any way to Honduran food.

 

 Note that there they aren’t used to any food lasting days in the fridge as it spoils very fast.  The thought of pulling yesterday’s leftovers out of the fridge and heating them up is just unheard of.  That made for some meal planning issues at first, since I usually eat yesterday’s dinner for lunch and freeze things to eat later that week. He doesn’t mind now, but shopping for and cooking new food every day might be something he thinks is reasonable.
