Why is a Vietnamese to English certified translation of birth certificate required?
The Vietnamese birth certificate (Giay Khai Sinh) is an important document that all Vietnamese nationals who wish to immigrate to the United States of America must have. All applicants must submit a Vietnamese to English certified translation of the birth certificate to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The Vietnamese certified translation of the birth certificate is also required for schools, colleges and other public and private organizations.
Vietnamese Birth Certificate
The ministry of Justice is overall responsible for registering births. At the district/regional level, People’s committees are authorized to issue the birth certificate. Vietnamese birth certificates usually contain first, middle and last name of the child, sex of the child, date and place of birth, father’s and mother’s names, issuing authority, name and title of signing authority. The Vietnamese translation specialists at The Certified Translation company will provide further information on this.
What if an applicant does not have their Vietnamese Birth Certificate?
As per Vietnamese law, a birth certificate can be obtained by filing an application with the provincial Justice department or the local People’s Committee office where the person was born. If the child’s parents had registered the birth with the local authorities, then certified copies of the birth certificate (Ban Sao) can be issued.
If parents had not registered the birth of the child, then they can apply for late registration or re-registration of birth. The process differs from region to region.
In case a birth certificate cannot be obtained because either the records have been destroyed or the government will not issue a new one; the applicant should get a document from the registrar’s office stating this. The Department of Homeland Security, Homeland and Naturalization Service allow secondary evidence and affidavits to be submitted. These rules are covered under 8 CFR 103.2(b)(2) where it states which secondary documents are acceptable and when affidavits are required. The rule also states how to demonstrate a record is not available.
