Ecuador Inscripcion de Nacimiento vs Certificado de Nacimiento

Filed: IR-1/CR-1 Visa Country: Ecuador

I received notice last week that my wife's birth certificate had been rejected. When I go to the acceptable documents it says that they accept the "inscripcion de nacimiento" from the "Registro Civil" from Ecuador and that the "certificado de nacimiento" that we submitted was unsatisfactory. When my wife went to the Registro Civil, she was told by them that the inscripcion de nacimiento and the certificado de nacimiento were the same thing.


When I looked on the Registro Civil's website it looks like an inscripcion de nacimiento is something we file with them. Do we have to file the inscripcion de nacimiento with Ecuador and then get a copy of it for the NVC? From what my wife understands from talking to the Registro Civil there is no inscripcion de nacimiento that she can get.

Apparently not, according to the DOS Reciprocity page for Ecuador -- While it is possible to acquire various types of birth certificates or entries, the only acceptable documents are "Inscripción de Nacimiento” and “Libro de Nacimientos”.  The following documents are not acceptable: “Partida de Nacimiento” and “Certificado de Nacimiento”.



The link above also describes the procedure for obtaining the acceptable documents.
