Question Birth Certificate showing both parent's names

Hey Guys!

So I have the Application Document Checklist for Subclasses 309 and 100 that I downloaded from the immi.gov.au website. It asks for a certified copy of the applicant's Birth Certificate showing both parent's names, or if you do not have this, a certified copy of your passport ID pages.

So my partner (he is Canadian) only has a Birth certificate extract which doesn't show his parent's names. We thought it would be fine to just provide the certified copy of his passport ID pages...

But now I've noticed on the Form 47SP document checklist it says if you don't have the Birth Certificate you must provide a stat dec detailing your date and place of birth and full name of your parents, in addition to the certified copy of the ID page of your passport.

Has anyone had to do this before? Or did you just provide the certified copy of passport? (We have his passport and Canadian Drivers licence certified)

Thanks so much

Robyn

See I thought they were both required - we submitted both birth certificate and certified passport copy page. It seems silly because your passport has place of birth on it, but I guess its maybe to filter out fake passports??

I would order one, he will need a full birth certificate for a range of things once he arrives in Australia. If you don't have the full birth certificate I recommend doing exaclty what the checklist says as this is what your CO will use to validate your application.

Thanks for the info! I think we will get the stat dec like it says.

I'm just wondering tho, is there anyone out there that didn't provide a certified copy of birth certificate and didn't get the stat dec?

cheers

Robyn

Why not just get a reissue of his birth certificate? Mos cases that doesn't take long at all. We had reissues done and took less than 2 weeks.

Fair enough Robyn but you might be asking the impossible as you're required to submit as per the checklist so if it asks for one or the other, I imagine most people sent something. You may get lucky though?

Hi Robyn,

My husband doesn't actually have a birth certificate at all! Haha and his baptism card is only thick paper, so hardly legible!

We did the stat dec and passport copies but I also attached his mothers baptism card, which stated her marriage on it (therefore displaying both parents names and D.O.B's)
