As I skim through some of the hiring requirements I am seeing same/similar lists like 10 year address history, 10 year work history, etc, etc. I am also seeing that a lot of document lists include "State Certified Birth Certificate."

I was born in the Ukraine and family came to the U.S. when I was 3. I do not have my birth certificate and neither do my parents. I have a U.S. passport and my social security card. Will I really be required to get my birth certificate?

From my research before starting school myself, most schools require the birth certificate due to the state license requirements or the I-9. In both cases, a passport meets the requirements. When in doubt, a quick phone call to the school/program will give confirmation.

If you have a passport, drivers license and social security care you should be fine. If they say that a BC is required let them know your situation and all the documentation you have. As long as you're legal to work in N America then you should be fine.

Yeah I will call a few places tomorrow, but figured I'd ask here. I think it would be insane to require a BC if I have a passport... lol. But sometimes bureaucracy is like that.

If you have a passport you'll be fine. On the I9 form you have two choices 1)to show two forms of ID (birth & DL) OR 2)a passport.
