As per the guidelines from the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) - for all documents submitted in support of the K-1 visa application - requirements that are originally in Russian must have an accompanying English translation.
According to the U.S. Department of State, some primary documents required for a K-1 visa application include:
Birth certificate of the applicant.
Proof of relationship with the U.S. citizen petitioner.
Divorce or death certificate(s) of any previous spouse(s) for both the U.S. citizen and the foreign fiancé(e), if applicable.
Police certificates from all places the applicant has lived since age 16.
Medical examination report.
Russian-specific nuances may require the inclusion of additional documents, such as military records for males or domestic registration documents (known as "propiska"). It's crucial to consult with the U.S. embassy or consulate in Russia for specific details.
Based on the U.S. Department of State's requirements, there's no specific certification mandated for translators. However, they must be competent in both Russian and English. The translator must provide a signed statement verifying the completeness and accuracy of their translation and certifying their ability to translate from Russian to English.
According to the U.S. Department of State, translated documents should include a certification from the translator that affirms the accuracy of the translation and their competency in both the source language (Russian) and English. Normally, notarization is not required for translations, but an apostille might be necessary if the U.S. constitution requires the original document's authentication. It is always a good idea to check with the U.S. embassy or consulate in Russia for particular details.
This guide provides a general overview, and for specific, accurate, and detailed advice, consulting directly with the relevant institutions or migration experts is essential. For more detailed information, contact the U.S. Embassy in Russia.
