FAQ: Do I Translate Full Farsi Birth Certificate for USCIS?

Some individuals who are completing an application for an immigration matter prefer to do so without the assistance of a lawyer. While some people can successfully submit their application, others need advice from an industry thought leader. One step that gets many Iranians into trouble is the way they go about getting certified translations for USCIS. Some Iranians assume that the certified translation of the first page of their birth certificate is sufficient for this purpose. Birth certificates issued in Iran are lengthy. They have several sections including the certificate holder’s personal information, parents’ details, marriage date, and important remarks. Translators who provide professional Persian translation usually do not know what needs to be translated for immigration applications.

They expect the client to supply all the required documents. The tricky thing about Iranian birth certificates is that the first page looks sufficient for immigration purposes. It contains the first name, last name, date of birth, the place of birth, parents’ names, and the photo of the certificate holder. Therefore, it is easy for Iranians to assume that they can translate parts of the birth certificate.

We have had individuals contact us and ask whether they can have the first page translated because it contained all of their personal details.
