Thread: birth cert issue

  1. #1
    Guest
    I was born in country "M " in 1961 but my parents left country when I was 7 months old and now I am citizen and nationality of country "N" .I don't have birth certificate from country M and don't have any papers to show the proof except in my current passport shows birthplace in that country M ..this is the same passport that I used for obtaining US visa from country N and came to USA in 1993
    my AOS interview is coming soon; I believe I need to show birth certificate. I am not sure how to deal with it
    Some one suggest me to get two copy of affidavit from two person verify me that I was born in that country M, is it correct?
    I have no way to get that certificate from country M since I don't have anybody I know lives there. It was too long ago probably don't have any records ...country M was pretty
    Underdeveloped then.

    Any other suggestion?

    under "unobtainable birth certificates", even though it is for San Francisco INS, it might apply all over.

    Just trying to help, I may be wrong

    Hi. You may try to contact the registry of country M to see if they do maintain a record. Many underdeveloped countries do have records of some type (even if they are handwritten) that they should be able to photocopy.

    For example, I know that Ecuador, has all of their records handwritten and stored in a back room somewhere, but they have it, and it is only about $5 to get an original copy.

    If that doesn't work, call the INS office that you will be dealing with and ask them what you should do (and call back to double check and make sure that you were given the right information.)

    Good Luc
