I am in the process of applying for my green card and one of the requirements is an original birth certicficate. I was born in Ghana and I do not have the birth certificate with me. I need to get a certificate from Ghana or a proof that my birth was registered. How do I get it from Ghana since there is no online service and I do not have anyone living there currently
Contact the Ghanian consulate nearest to you, in NY I presume, or even better, their embassy in D.C.. for guidance on obtaining a certified copy of a Ghanian birth certificate.
