Acquiring birth certificate of newborn

Is it possible for me to take birth certificate for my new-born if I am on Article #14 (temporary visa)?

Name withheld

Answer: Article 14 visa, as you rightly said, is temporary. It is issued to prevent the recipient from being classified as illegal while he/she awaits the completion of the processes to get a permanent residence visa.

Getting a birth certificate for your new-born baby will not be easy as you are supposed to meet all the requirements including valid residence (permanent). This not withstanding there is no harm in trying as in some cases exceptions are made.
