Copy of birth certificate?

Hi everyone,
My girlfriend and I are currently preparing our partner visa application. It says to include a certified copy of the birth certificate, however, her birth certificate has "DO NOT DUPLICATE BY ANY MEANS" and "Warning: It is illegal to copy this birth certificate" (or similar) written on it. Can we still get a copy of it or should we send an original?

Hi there,

I think it would be OK to still get a certified copy of it for the application. I know that DIAC can request to see original documents after lodgement, so if they wanted to confirm the authenticity, they could simply ask you for it later. Maybe a quick call to your nearest Australian embassy could clear it up.

She ended up having no issues with it - They were happy to certify the copy.

I've gotten all mine done at Victoria Police, they certify the copies for free (I'm sure police in other states are similar). Just show them the original and the copy and they'll do it for you.
You'll need to get a copy done beforehand though. If you don't have a photocopier available to you, Officeworks have self-serve copiers that cost 6 cents per page.

Brilliant, thanks a lot. We're in UK and considering either the prospective marriage visa route, or my partner going on a working holiday visa and then applying for a partner visa once there. I'm assuming you are lodging on shore? Does that allow your partner to work there whilst waiting for the visa to process? Thanks!

We're preparing most things here. My girlfriend's here on a Working Holiday Visa. We're going to be going back to the USA in about a week, and are going to send our application once there (offshore)
