Has anybody did the interview without notarized copy of birth? I e-mailed the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) Office in Guangzhou, China. and asked them. They told me her passport was good enough.

 

Thank you for your inquiry to the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) Office in Guangzhou, China. Our office can provide you with the following general information, which does not constitute legal advice.

A notarized copy of your wife’s birth certificate is not required.  A copy of the biographic page of her passport is sufficient.

 

Please provide notarized copies of your marriage certificate, with English translations.

 

Please bring the original CRBA certificates for your children.  We will view the originals and make copies then return the originals to you.

Nope - NOBODY ever has! I have no idea why they would say that, or why you would want to try. It's possible that they're assuming she has a Medical Certificate of Birth (these were issued for births after 1996), but even these have been rejected if the applicant does not have the white book copy.

You may be confusing notarized copies, with documents from the notary office. All Chinese documents, birth certificate, marriage certificate, divorce certificate, police certificate, and attached translations are issued by the notary offices. Sometimes police certificate is acquired at the PSB and then translated at the notary office.

The USCIS does not need her birth certificate - the Dept. of State, however, WILL - AT THE INTERVIEW,

Thanks for all the replies. Yes I messed up in my wording of the question. To submit the i-130 she doesn't need it...to complete the interview she needs it. Been here too long...forgot how to properly ask a "common sense" question. HAHA
