The Births, Deaths and Marriages Registration Office is only able to provide information by way of certificates and does so following receipt of a formal application. Current processing time for certificates is 10 days.
Online Birth Registration
In SA we have a new method of registering a birth online, as well as applying for a birth certificate online.
Instead of filling in the printed Birth Registration Statement document provided to you by the hospital or midwife, you can provide the details online in one easy process.
It doesn’t matter which way you choose to register the birth, as long as it is done within 60 days, as required by law.
