my wife now lost her birth certififcate. We do already have our passports and they are brand new. We shouldnt need our birth certs cause we have our passports right?? Cause all the info is on the passports cause we had to give our birth cert to get our passports. We are leaving for europe in 4 days so we really need to know asap. thanks much

Joey,

I've never been in the situation that someone asked me to see my birth certificate. Passport was most of the time sufficent (only the one time not, in Wisconsin, trying to buy alcohol with it...they might have never seen a passport before, though)

How are you doing Joey?

You don't need your birth certificate to get through immigration, just a passport and return ticket will suffice.

Have a good holiday.

Hi Joey,

Birth certificate is not an internationally recognised travel document. Passport is. So fear not. ;)

However, I think your wife should report the lost to the relevant authorities and go get her birth cert reissued in case it is needed later for other official matters in Canada.

Calm down Joey,
you dont need a birthcertificate if you have a passport !!

You don't need it for travelling, so your sorted - go out and have a fantastic trip.

My birth cert hasn't got a last name on it,

Isn't it "007"?

Three days to go Joey . . . have we managed to calm you at all?
