Duplicate British Adoption Certificates are often essential to prove identity when applying for:
- Bank accounts
- Social Security
- Employer ID
- Driving licence
- Visas & Immigration
What type of certificate will I get?
You will receive an official certified copy of the official adoption registration. This is a government-issued replacement which will be accepted for all official purposes.
Is this the same as a birth certificate?
If you are adopted, your adoption certificate supersedes your original birth certificate. Therefore, if you require this document for official purposes such as applying for a job, passport, visa or anything else which requires you to prove your identity, this is the certificate you will need.
Will the adoption certificate be accepted for use in the UAE?
If you require the adoption certificate to present to the UAE authorities, they will require it to be attested before it can be used. This is a process that ensures that the UAE Embassy in London has seen and verified the certificate before it is stamped. You will require the certificate to be attested if you intend to use the certificate for Visa Applications as well as many other official purposes in the UAE. We can arrange for your new certificate to be attested once it has been issued - just order this service alongside the certificate itself.
