What exactly is a "long form" birth certificate? What is the difference between a regular BC and a long form BC?
The "long form" lists both your parents full names, where as not every ones short form does, especially older ones.
Take your BC to where they process for passports, like a post office, if it is good to get a passport it will be good to get on the ship.
My degree of sarcasm depends on your degree of stupidity!
