Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Sounds like the best timeline one could ask for right now - congrats! Question: how was the certificate mailed to you, and did you have to sign for it?

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Can't believe you're still waiting. Seven months after your confirmation of address. There's something not right about that. Frustrating that there's no one to speak to. Surely it can't be that much longer. [/quote] LOL....that's what I thought a month ago when people started getting emails! Thanks...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

For those of you who recently sent proof of pregnancy documentation to expedite your application, how long did it take from the day the documents arrived to FBR to when you received an email from them?
