How to order

Complete our online application form to order a birth certificate and select the decorative design of your choice. It's a wonderful gift for parents, grandparents, godparents or relatives.

Order a birth certificate

Our commemorative birth certificates are:

  • suitable for framing at 279mm x 355mm in size, a bit bigger than A4 paper (which is 210mm × 297mm)
  • printed on archival paper and wrapped in acid-free tissue paper and
  • sent to you in a protective cardboard cylinder.

Commemorative birth certificates are not intended for use as proof of identity. For official proof of identity, you'll need a standard birth certificate.

If you're ordering a birth certificate for a child or adult, you can apply for either a:

  • package deal of a standard birth certificate and a commemorative certificate together or
  • commemorative birth certificate on its own. 

You can't order a commemorative birth certificate on its own for a new baby. 

You can buy a standard certificate or choose from our commemorative certificate designs.

  • $41 for a commemorative birth certificate
  • $87 for a pack with a standard and a commemorative birth certificate.

Cost includes certificate(s) and standard postage.
