Notarized copy of birth certificate

Recommended Posts

What does that mean? Does that mean I just take a photocopy of my birth cerficate on a piece of paper and have a notary sign it or is it more complicated than that? Is the original birth certificate supposed to be notarized? Mine is laminated so I don't know how I'd have that done?

 

Perhaps this is a late at night and I'm too tired to think question but PLEASE tell me how to do this paperwork requirement!

This means an orginal birth certficate. The orginal b/c's should have a raised seal on it, indicating that it's official from the state which you were born. I don't think that the hotel will accept a photo copy.

You'll need a notary/lawyer to copy and notarize that the document (birth certificate) mailed is a true copy of the original. It will look like a colour copy (being laminated will still copy) but will have a raied seal stamp.

Hi there!

 

We ordered another copy of our birth certificate. Our resort specified that we have the "long version" of our birth certificate (not the credit card size one).

 

I would check exactly what the requirements are for your resort. Different resorts have different requirements for a legal ceremony.

 

Here is a thread with some of the info that might be useful.

It seems complicated for you guys. I've been reading some other threads talking about the cost of having it done too.

 

Im in the UK. I went to my solicitors yesterday. They took a copy of the birth certificates and passports. On the copy they stamped it with their official stamp to say: We hereby certify this to be a true and accurate copy of the original. they then signed each one. This cost me £10 (approx $14).

 

I have scanned these copies and sent them to Chandlyn. Just waiting to see if she wants a hard copy or not. Obviously I'll be taking the originals with me when we go!

I'm really confused now, we have been told by our travel agent that we have to send a copy of our b/c and passport and they send it on. Do I need to send them to Chandlyn as well ?

You need to send notarized PHOTOCOPIES of your birth certificate and passports. The notary will put their seal on the photocopy to certify that it is a true copy of the original. No need to send your actual birth certificate and passport to Jamaica!

You need Passport and Birth cerficate

It is a photo of copy done at a local notery in color they sing it and stamp it with a special stamp.

From what i read your b/c needs to be long version (with fathers name) but I could be wrong, we just got new ones just in case (it only took a month to get them). Send the notery copy to w/c. When you go down there for the wedding take original with you dont forget them.

That is for Jamaica as far as I know

Hi Blurt

If you've booked your wedding through Thomson I think they sort everything for you. Thomson didn't have the date I wanted so I went direct to the hotel which is why I've sorted it myself.

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
