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.
You must provide three forms of current identification for each parent. You can choose to scan or take a clear photo of the three forms of ID you'll be using for both parents. Make sure each ID document is saved on your computer as a
JPEG, PDF or TIFF file and that each file is less than 20MB in size.
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.
You will be asked to certify that you have read and understood our Privacy and disclosure of birth data & disclosure of information statement when registering your newborn.
