A birth certificate is an official copy of the birth registration held by the NSW Registry of Births, Deaths & Marriages. It's often used to help establish a person's identity.
For a birth or adoption that occurred in NSW, you can apply online, by post, or in person at a service centre. Note that online applications are not available for new births under 90 days old.
Certificates are sent to you by the Registry, using registered post. You cannot get a certificate from a service centre.Apply online
