Birth certificate


You can use your birth certificate to give proof of your official date of birth. You may need this certificate, for example, when moving abroad and registering as a resident of another country. Schools and kindergartens in other countries may also require a birth certificate.

The following information is included in the certificate when you order a standard certificate via the self-service. A standard certificate means that the certificate always contains the same information and the selected optional information: 

-    Name, former names, date of birth (or personal identity code), municipality of birth, country of birth, nationality, and current municipality of residence. 
-    The certificate also includes the names, dates of birth, municipalities of birth, countries of birth and nationalities of the person’s parents if this information is available on the Population Information System. 

If you need other information, order the certificate by email, phone or a form.


How to order certificates


You can order a certificate of yourself or another person for an acceptable purpose of use. Please note that you can use the self-service only to order a certificate for yourself or your dependants.

Certificates ordered and delivered through the self-service are cheaper, and you receive certificates quickly. Prices can be found at the bottom of the page.
