NSO Birth Certificate rejected by NVC

Recommended Posts

My wifes Birth certificate was issued by the old NSO office. Today NVC rejected the document and said "please provide a document from an accepted authority."

 

I guess they are saying it has to be a PSA birth certificate? But the NSO certificate was accepted for out I130 petition. I believe the government offices are closed. Perhaps I could put a note that we will bring the PSA certificate to the interview but cannot get it now because of covid19? That explanation was accepted for the police clearance.

Sorry, I can't answer your question about the acceptability of (previously called) NSO Certificates vs (Now called) PSA Certificates, but Yes it is the same government entity only the name was changed. However, regarding the PSA and NBI, both organizations are open and accepting appointments, the cost is fairly cheap (By US Monetary standards). I believe the PSA COB should be free and the NBI is something like 175PHP or there about. It of coarse depends on where in the country your wife is located as to their current appointment schedule dates available, etc... But you can check openings at the PSA on their website as well as creating an account and scheduling an appointment for the NBI at their website. The fee's can be paid via 7-11 Mini mart. My Fiance just got her NBI last week, additionally the DFA is also open and is almost done catching up on their backlog appointments (previously canceled) and are now accepting new appointments online via the tool. Still waiting for the embassies to open back up though

Did NVC make a mistake? According to this thread NSO documents are still fine.

 

 

That thread is 5 years ago.   PSA is now required 

 

When in doubt

Turns out my wife already has her PSA birth certificate. She just accidentally scanned the old NSO one.

 

Hoping for a DQ tomorrow!

What makes you think tomorrow?  When you upload a new document you get placed at the back of the review line.  More likely a,few weeks to DQ

Oh well, the Embassy isn't doing interviews yet anyway. As long as we are DQ'd before the Embassy opens I'll be happy.

 

I pray to God this virus will go away and the embassies can reopen.

Sometimes the truth is what it is.

It's not the truth. My stepsons passport photo got rejected by NVC on Friday. I reloaded another version immediately after getting the email. My stepson was DQ'd in 2 hours. You're wrong. An incorrect document doesn't push you to the back of the line.

Is a passport photo a document?  A passport photo spec can be validated by a computer algorithm.   A civil document requires something a bit more.
