A birth certificate is a vital record that documents the birth of a child. The term "birth certificate" can refer to either the original document certifying the circumstances of the birth or to a certified copy of or representation of the ensuing registration of that birth. Depending on the jurisdiction, a record of birth might or might not contain verification of the event by such as a midwife or doctor.
A birth certificate is a very important document required for many immigration related matters including getting a permanent visa, sponsoring parents' visitor visa, sponsoring relatives, etc.
For visa application to Japan, a birth certificate must be from NSO Main Office/Serbilis Outlet Center (Nationwide) issued within one (1) year. In case of non-record, you must submit certificate of non-record together with the one from Local Civil Registrar.
Additional documents may be required if the birth certificate is unreadable or if there is no record in NSO (in addition to "Certificate of Non-Record" from NSO Headquarter).
These are the following:
1. Birth Certificate from Local Civil Registrar (if Birth Certificate (NSO) is "Late Registration")
2. Baptismal Certificate
3. School Record (Form 137)
4. School Yearbook (if applicable)
You must indicate the complete address and land line (telephone, if applicable) of the church in the baptismal certificate, and of the school in school record.
