Most of us lead busy lives and want to spend as much time as possible with our loved-ones. We don't want to be caught up in time consuming administration.
To help you transact with us without any hassles, here are some time saving tips.
After a life event has been registered, you can apply online for a certificate. Our online application systems have been improved to make it simpler and easier for you to apply for a birth, marriage, death or replacement change of name certificate.
You won't need a One Gov Account with our new system. Our online service is fully integrated, safe, secure and faster than it has ever been. You will receive updates on the status of your order including an Australia Post tracking number when your certificate is dispatched.
More than half of applications for Births, Deaths
& Marriages certificates are now submitted online, as our customers take
advantage of the efficiency and convenience of the process.

We don't currently have an online system for birth registration. The hospital or midwife will give the new mother a "Birth Registration Statement". This form must be completed accurately and mailed to the Registry within 60 days of the birth. A birth certificate application is included and the usual certificate fee applies.
