Proof of Relation and Photo ID
Certain rules are present which govern who has the authority to obtain a baby’s birth certificate. It must be a person related to the child with proof of relation. A legal representative of the child, such as a lawyer, also has permission to get the child’s birth certificate. A photo ID, such as your ID book or drivers license, is required to receive a child’s birth certificate. This is necessary to ensure the person is indeed who he says he is.
Date of Birth
The child’s date of birth is needed when applying for a birth certificate. The day, month, and year should be included here.
Child’s Full Name
In order for the Department of Home Affairs to find the correct birth certificate, the child’s full name as it appears on the birth certificate is necessary.
Mother’s Maiden Name
The mother’s name as it appears on the child’s birth certificate is also necessary in order to identify the correct birth certificate.
Father’s Full Name
When applying for a birth certificate for a child, the father’s full name is also required. This information is not necessary if no father is listed on the birth certificate.
Location of Birth
The child’s place of birth is necessary for the birth certificate application. The hospital of birth is not usually necessary information; however it may be helpful in some situations.
