Hi All,

I have applied for both unabridged and vault copies of birth certificates and marriage certificates for an ancestral visa application.

My Birth Certificate - Vault & Unabridged.
Mothers Birth Certificate - Vault & Unabridged.
My Parents Marriage Certificate - Vault & Unabridged.
My Grandparents Marriage Certificate - Vault & Unabridged.

I have received all the unabridged certificates. I have only received the vault copy of my birth certificate.

Can an application be done with the South African unabridged certificates or would I still require the vault copies for all the other certificates as well?

On my mother’s birth certificate, my grandmother’s name is not spelt correctly. The name however is correct on my grandparent’s marriage certificate. What is the best way to correct this? Should I just include a letter signed by my Grandmother confirming the spelling of her name?
