Registering your newborn is easy with our online registration form. Before you start filling in the birth registration form make sure you follow the steps below and have all the right information ready.
Note: Only the parent(s) of the child can register the birth online. If you are not the parent and need to register the birth, please call 13 77 88 for assistance.
Make sure you have agreed on the baby’s name. If you change the name after registering your baby an additional fee applies.
Choosing a name is always a very special moment, and the vast majority of names can be registered. However, some names are prohibited e.g. words which may be offensive, official titles or rank, using numbers or symbols e.g. 1st, Snr or Jnr. For more information please refer to the Prohibited Names Policy – PDF.
You must provide three forms of current identification for each parent. Scan or take a clear photo of each ID you'll be using and save on your computer as a
JPEG, PDF or TIFF file. Maximum file size is 20MB.
Filenames must be alphanumeric
with no spaces, dashes, or underscores. Examples:
You'll be asked to upload these during the registration process.
You must provide at least three forms of current ID, one of each from categories 1, 2 and 3. If you’re unable to provide ID from categories 1 and 2, you must still provide at least three forms of ID. At least two of these must be from category 3. If you’re unable to comply with these requirements, please
contact us for further advice.
