Smile Citizenship interview question

Hi,

I have the list of documents that the immigration has asked me to bring on the day of interview however, I am a bit confused on whether for each section (for example evidence of birth) do I need to bring all the documents requested in that section?

Evidence of your birth name, date of birth, gender:
  • Full birth certificate with details of parent(s) - commemorative birth certificates not accepted
  • Family registration document with details of parent(s)

So as I said before, I do not understand if I need to provide both the documents. Since I do have a birth certificate but not the Family registration document with details of parent(s).

Thank you.

You just need to bring the original copies of all the documents you submitted with your citizenship application. If you only provided your birth certificate with your application, that is what you need to provide at your interview.

During our separate interviews for my husband and I we were both asked to show:
- birth certificate
- driver's license
- passport
They didn't ask us for anything else and because of COVID you actually just hold it up to the glass and they just check that it matches what was submitted with your application (very quickly!). They didn't even touch the document and it took maybe 3 minutes all together.
I can't say you will have the same experience but we know another person that had an interview on the same day and they had the same situation.

I uploaded a scan of my birth certificate, that was created several years ago when applying for a previous visa. I have since stupidly thrown away the document, and just discovered this.
If I just bring the passport, drivers licence, and other invoices showing my name and address, would a printed birth certificate suffice? Because I now no longer have one, I'm worried now that i'll get turned away
