Request birth certificate

Service Description

After birth, every child in Germany must be registered in the birth register. After this registration, you can additionally apply for the issuance of a birth certificate. This proves the birth of the person and contains information on the place and time of birth as well as the first name and surname. As a rule, it also contains information about the sex and parents of the person.

You will need a birth certificate in various contexts throughout your life. For use abroad, it can also be issued on a multilingual form. You can use it in many countries without translation.

You can have an (international) birth certificate issued at the registry office that recorded your birth. In federal states where there is a central register network, you can also obtain the birth certificate at any other registry office of the register network there.
