Citizenship interview Birth certificate requirement

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I have an interview this week, the invitation requests that I bring an original birth certificate with parents names  on it. As I only have an original short form birth certificate (i.e. without parents names) i ordered what i thought was a new original from the UK.

Lo and behold a birth certificate showed up last week which is a full one including parents names e.t.c. Unfortunately it's a certified copy! 

I just wondered if anyone had gotten through the interview with a certified copy of their original birth certificate.

 

Regards.

I have never been clear about what an 'original copy' is.

I have my interview in a few weeks but only have the short form of my UK birth certificate (doesn't show my parents). Will I be OK with this or do I HAVE to have the full one

I didn’t upload any evidence regarding parents. I just had to state their names, DOBs etc. I didn’t need to full version for my PR so am a bit shocked that I might need it now when I’ve been here for 5 years+!!!

The email I received with my appointment details stated clearly that they want the birth certificate with parents names. I ordered mine approx 6 weeks out using standard postage and it arrived 3 working days before the interview. 

You can pay extra to get it sent a bit quicker. Suggest you get onto it ASAP.
