Date of Birth Certificate

Hello Friends,
I have just applied spouse visa in Australia in which I have provided most of the documents except date of birth certificate. My partner does not have DOB certificate and it takes long time to get new one from the government authorities. Now my query is, can she provide any affidavit from her parents or relatives to immigration department. Your response will be appreciated.
Thank you

You're best to put such things to Immi but I expect that you have given the answer you may receive, ie.
Getting one is possible and if it takes some time, so be it.

Hi Rakeshmehta, my husband and i have just applied for spouse visa in New Delhi and he too has no birth certificate. What did you decide to do? Do you know if we can provide an affidavit from the parents to immigration? Will they accept this?
Thanks

We had the same problem recently also in India.We went to the municipal registry and even though his mum had registered his birth there, after a search, my husband's birth certificate was untraceable.

On the visa application document checklist, it tells you what to do in such a case. Just follow that advice and you will be right. You have to get an affidavit typed up, stating his parents names and address and that he tried unsuccessfully to obtain his birth certificate. We didn't get his parents to do this affidavit, rather, we followed the instructions and the affidavit was by my husband.

The High Commission accepted that.

Jude, we have to wait three to four months to find out. His interview was just a few days ago. Good luck with your application :-)

He was asked the usual questions... nothing shocking or embarrassing. I've posted about it. You may find the thread interesting:

http://www.australiaforum.com/visas-...migration.html

My posts are on page two, but read the whole thread, to get a good idea of what others have experienced. He just had to bring his letter of 'request for interview', and his passport and our original marriage certificate. They kept these and will courier them back once the decision is made.
