​Registering your Newborn...
made easy!

[Issued: Tuesday, 10 April 2018]

Our new web-based application form provides parents and guardians with a convenient way to register a child's birth online.

The online birth registration system not only makes services easier and accessible for the NSW community, it also reduces processing times, increases efficiency and accuracy of birth records.

Our system is linked to the online birth certificate application so parents can register and apply for a birth certificate at the same time, in one simple transaction.Parents can preview the information before submitting. Once an application is started, there is a unique reference code that can be used to track progress.

When a parent or guardian submits an online registration, the Registry will do all the necessary checks to verify if the registration can be finalised. If all the information is correct, a birth registration is created. If the parent or guardian also applied for a birth certificate, this will print automatically once a successful birth registration has been made in the Registry system.

New parents will receive a flyer in the parent pack given to them by the hospital that covers the simple steps for registering their baby. The registration can be submitted on a number of devices including a tablet, desktop, laptop and some mobile phones. The flyer replaces the paper birth registration statement, and is available in multiple languages.
