Birth certificate

Your birth certificate must be an original – not a copy. The certificate should have a seal or a stamp. The certificate must be state-issued. It cannot be a certificate from a hospital.

  • Bring an original or certified copy of your birth certificate. It should have a raised, embossed, engraved or multicolored seal on the top.
  • A birth certificate issued by the hospital where you were born is NOT considered proof of citizenship, regardless of whether it was designed to look cute or designed to look “official,”
  • The birth certificate must have your name, the date you were born, the place you were born and a registrar’s signature on it to be considered valid.
  • Check the date that the birth certificate was filed with the registrar’s office. If it was filed late, more than one year after you were born, you won’t be issued a passport unless you can back it up with secondary evidence of US citizenship.
