Getting a birth certificate is really not that difficult. You get the first copy when you are born, obviously but many times that copy can be lost or destroyed before you are old enough to need it for yourself.

  • A birth certificate has to be obtained from the place where you were born.
  • If you are unsuccessful in obtaining your certificate on your own, consider using a company that specializes in requesting vital records from Mexico.
  • If you are seeking a copy of a certificate after that original dispersal, you will need to contact the Birth Registrars Office or Office of Vital Statistics in the state in which you were born.

Required Information[edit]

  • Name, gender and date and time of birth
  • Place of birth and gestational week of birth
  • Health status at birth, including length and weight
  • Mother's name, age, ethnicity and nationality
  • Mother's ID card number
  • Father's name, age, ethnicity and nationality
  • Father's ID card number
  • Location of birth (hospital, home etc.)
  • Name of the facility
  • The form you filled out at the hospital for your child's birth.
  • Copies of all of the above documents.


Need for the Document[edit]

A birth certificate is a vital record that documents the birth of a child. The term "birth certificate" can refer to either the original document certifying the circumstances of the birth or to a certified copy of or representation of the ensuing registration of that birth. Depending on the jurisdiction, a record of birth might or might not contain verification of the event by such as a midwife or doctor.

Information which might help[edit]

A note on the copies. Don't make them or bring them in advance. They are very particular about how they want things copied and the size of the paper they are copied on. When you get to the Registro Civil, I advise going in and having them check your paperwork to make sure everything is correct. If they say it is, they will tell you that you need copies.

Other uses of the Document/Certificate[edit]

The actual record of birth is stored with a government agency. That agency will issue certified copies or representations of the original birth record upon request,
