My parents will appear at Mumbai consulate for B2 application. In the list of required documents, the VFS website mentions birth certificate for parents and the US relative.
I have a birth certificate, but my parents do not. My parents have school leaving certificates (in Gujarati) with date of birth, which I can get translated in English.
What is a reasonably easy to obtain document if parents do not have the birth certificate? Is it really required given that date of birth, address etc. are already mentioned in the passport?
My original birth certificate (which is in English) does not have my name, but has parents name. If I sent a notarized copy of the original to them by post, will that suffice?
Thank you for the inputs,
