Birth Certificate question

    Hi,

    I read the requirement that Mumbai consulate is asking for original Birth certificate in case of drop box applications for Visitor visa.

    What about the appointment through interview in Mumbai? Do we need to send BC for that also?
    If BC is in hindi, do we need to get a translated copy also?

    Thanks

    yes. they will ask for the original BC or a notarized copy. My friend's parent went there last month and were asked for BC specifically. If its in Hindi, it will be best to get a notarized translated copy, just to be on the safe side.

    Notarized copy??

    Does that mean Affidavit of birth from the court will do?

    I do not have original B.C

    Thanks a lot

    Yes

    The Mumbai consulate website does mention Original BC req.

    However I had a similar problem and my parents went to the interview with court affidavit. They were never asked to show BC, so I cannot tell you the cnsequence of not having one.

    They got the visa.

    But You can get "No record Available" certificate from Municipal Corp. That makes afidavit more genuine.

    Its a long process-- my parents are still trying to get that certifaicate and they wudnt give that until my parent bring court order.

    Hi

    As far as I know 2 of my friends parents arrived in the last month and both werent asked. You can take teh chance. But if you want to, as told earlier, send it in English. Can be notarised by someone and taken.

    My mother has an appointment at Mumbai Consulate on june 1st. I have my original BC (no name) and an affidevit from my mother and father about birth certificate. This is the one that I used for my green card.

    Now, should I send these original documents to them? or should I get a photocopy and get it notarized at my bank and send the copies?

    Isn't it foolish to ask original BC. Why will parents have original BC? It will be with child who is in US. Its risky to send it by mail !!

    Pls advice. I have to mail these within a day or two.

    Thanks a zillion

    Your birthcertificate with your name, parents name, place, DOB all same as passport and your marriage certificate which has your and your husband's name (same as in passport or affidavit of name change).

    original BC not avaiable

    Hi gurus,

    My original BC is not available since I was born before they started keeping records. My parents have a visa appt at Kolkata. They are carrying Effidevit from mother, father and grandmother and also my matriculaton certificate. Is a 'Not available' cert from municipality absolutely essential? I was born in Bihar and there is not enough time to get the 'Not available' cert now.

    Thanks, Deba
