Jamaican Interview

6 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hi Guys

 

I am checking off the documents I have while waiting for interview:

 

1. I have a marriage certificate from a US state as we got married in the US, do I also need to also get a Jamaican marriage certificate from Registers General Dept (RGD) to take to the interview?

 

2. For the copy of the birth certificate, is this a regular photocopy or a photocopy stamped by the Registers General Dept.?

 

Thank you.

Nothing from RGD is needed, your marriage certificate from the US is all you need to provide.  JA accepts it.  The original birth certificate and original marriage certificate is required at the interview.  All original documents are required at the interview.

I was just curious as to what they meant by original and certified copies in red writing as per the attached and asking for it to be reduced to 92%. So I was thinking I needed to apply to RGD for a certified copy of my original as well and bring that plus the original.

You are mistaken.  It states Original OR Certified Copies (Notarized Copies) and a photocopy

 

If you were married in the US, the only document that you should be submitting from RGD is his birth certificate and the birth certificates of any of his children. 

 

Also, JA (RGD) documents are printed on legal size paper, not letter sized paper so they are suggesting that you make the photocopy at reduced size 92% to make it still legible. If you cut off the bottom of the document, they will not accept the photocopy and will keep the original.
