My case is pending submission of Civil Documents. 

 

Here's a little background. I got married in Karachi, Pakistan and our Nikah Nama was originally prepared in English and in four original copies. We don't have a Nikah Nama in Urdu (or as USCIS calls it "original language"). 

 

All our Civil Documents have been accepted except our Original Nikah Nama. In addition to the Nikah Nama, we provided a NADRA  Marriage Registration Certificate which was issued on the basis of our original Nikah Nama from a Union Council office in Karachi.

 

Unfortunately, NVC has rejected both documents and requested us to upload a marriage certificate in original language (Urdu) and an attested of copy of the same in English.

 

My question is how do we get an a Nikah Nama in Urdu? Should we get it translated in Urdu and then upload an attested copy? Or get it translated in Urdu then back to English and then upload an attested copy?

 

Any help from you guys is much appreciated.

 

Thank you,

I'm pretty sure that the Urdu Nikah Nama is a must when submitting documents. Since this doesn't happen too often, I would recommend contacting the USCIS and speaking to an Officer and finding out what are your options, unless you can get an original Urdu Nikah Nama signed again, which I believe is unlikely. I would recommend getting your original English Nikah Nama translated to the Urdu version and having it certified and stamped and then resubmitting it.

Hey

we had the same problem. Our English nikkah nama was rejected by the NVC then we called them and explained them that this Nikkah nama is valid and Pakistan issues nikkah nama in both languages I.e Urdu and English 

We were asked by the NVC to  re-upload the English Nikkah nama and NADRA marriage certificate with an explanation letter. We did that and NVC accepted our documents and Documentary qualified us

Soo don’t get an Urdu nikkah nama, just re-upload the English one with an explanation letter.
