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. You can order at the same time a particular certificate both for yourself and your dependants. You get a separate certificate for each individual.
The certificate includes the following information:
Name, former names, date of birth, municipality of residence at birth, country of birth, citizenship and municipality of residence. The certificate also includes your parents’ names, dates of birth, municipalities of birth, countries of birth and nationalities. If you were born before 1953, your parents’ personal data might not be in the population information system and cannot be included in the certificate.
You can also choose to include your personal identity code on the certificate.
