birth certificate
« on: March 24, 2008, 02:28:57 pm »
Hi there,
thanks for all the info we get on this forum.
Hope to be in NZ by November 2008.
Is a FULL and UNABRIDGED birth certificate the same thing?

Not sure, but I know that the unabridged one has your parents names on it too O0

Hi Elsie,

As far as I know a full birth certificate is the same as an unabridged birth certificate. This certificate as mentioned  by hadenough has both your parents names on. I have just recently applied for these for both my fiance and myself. Hope this helps.
 :gl: with all your planning.

Elsie they are indeed one and the same. When applying do ask for a full birth certificate as the word unabrideged seems to confuse the daylights out of HA
