PennDOT Issues Reminder Regarding Puerto Rican-Issued Birth Certificates as Credentials for Driver’s Licenses/ID Cards

PennDOT Issues Reminder Regarding Puerto Rican-Issued Birth Certificates as Credentials for Driver’s Licenses/ID Cards

Harrisburg – PennDOT today issued a reminder that as of Nov. 1, it can no longer accept birth certificates issued by the Puerto Rican government prior to July 1, 2010, as acceptable proof of identity when applying for a driver’s license or photo identification card.

The change is due to a law passed by the Puerto Rican government last year, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, invalidating all Puerto Rico-issued birth certificates issued prior to July 1, 2010. The law aims to strengthen the birth certificate issuance process to combat the fraudulent use of Puerto Rico-issued birth certificates to unlawfully obtain U.S. passports, Social Security benefits and other federal services.

Individuals born in Puerto Rico who were issued a birth certificate prior to July 1, 2010, may obtain a new, valid copy of their birth certificate from the Puerto Rico Vital Statistics Record Office. Puerto Rico’s government advises Puerto Rican-born individuals living stateside that only those who need a birth certificate for a transaction or official purpose need apply as soon as possible; those who want to obtain a copy for their records can do so at a later date.

In order to assist the Puerto Rican-born community living in the U.S., the Puerto Rican government has an online process for individuals to apply for the new birth certificates available via www.pr.gov. For more information about the new law and instructions on how to apply by mail, visit www.prfaa.com.

For additional information on the identity and residency documentation needed to obtain a Pennsylvania driver’s license or photo ID card, visit the Identity/Security Information Center on PennDOT’s Driver and Vehicle Services website, www.dmv.state.pa.us.

Are they going to take both Saturday and Monday as paid days off for Puerto Rico Birth Certificate Emancipation Day?
