    The NRL Package includes 1 Standard Birth Certificate (for official purposes) and 1 Commemorative Certificate and costs $81. On any order additional Commemorative Certificates are available at $25 each.

    Can anyone order these?

    As long as the person is born in NSW, then they can be of any age and are eligible to apply for the NRL Commemorative Birth Certificate Package.

    The NRL Commemorative Birth Certificate Package is only available for a birth that occurred in NSW. If you are born in another State or Territory of Australia, please check the relevant website for more information: Other Registries & links

    Can I get one for a friend, as a present?

    Yes, you need to complete and attach a Letter of Authority giving permission to apply plus 3 forms of identification for yourself and 3 forms of identity for your friend. Otherwise, you could give them the Application form and $81.

    Are they legal? Can I use it to update my Passport?

    Commemorative birth certificates do not contain security features and organisations may not accept them as a proof of identity document. Your Standard Birth certificate (included in each package) can be used for official purposes.

    Can I laminate the certificates in plastic?

    You may do as you please with your NRL Commemorative certificate. We hope you put it on display! However, the standard certificate has security features which are invalidated if you laminate it.

    How and when do I receive my certificates?

    Your Standard certificate is folded inside a regular envelope and sent Registered Post. Each NRL Commemorative Birth Certificate is individually wrapped in tissue paper and packaged in a protective cylinder.

    The Standard certificate should arrive within a couple of weeks, by Registered Post. The Commemorative certificate is packaged and sent separately by Post and will take about 3 weeks. Turnaround times are on our website

    I need it in a hurry can I pay for a Priority service?

    A Priority service is not available for the NRL Commemorative Birth Certificate Package. 

    Can I collect my certificate in person from one of your outlets?

    The NRL Commemorative Birth Certificate can only be distributed by Australia Post. To ensure the highest quality, NRL certificates are printed at a Printing Agency.
