Thanks for all the support in the past. An assciate of mine is applying for his Ancestry visa and has hit, what may be a documentation snag.
Aside from the other supporting documentation he has the following:
- Grandfather's original UK unabridged birth certificate
- Father's original South African abridged birth certificate
- His own original unabridged South African birth certificate
Is there a chance this documentation will be accepted by UKBA where his father's birth certificate is abridged? Unfortunately his father was born in 1912 and South African Home Affairs have said that it may take up to a year to trace the original documentation and re-issue an unabridged birth certificate where records are that old.
Thanks in advance
