It is a legal requirement for births in Tasmania to be registered. 

If you wish to apply for a certificate, there are 3 types available.

Standard Birth Certificate

  • Contains all details about a birth, including information about the parents. This document is required for most proof of identification purposes eg. passport applications and school enrolment.

Decorative Birth Certificate

  • Designed for display purposes rather than identification purposes.  These certificates are printed on A3 size (297 x 420mm), superior quality paper, which makes them ideal for framing. The certificates are packaged in a protective cylinder.
  • There are 3 designs available:


  • Tasmanian native floras in shades of green, gold and brown


  • Perfect for hanging in the nursery.


  •  A classic design that captures the bond between parent and child.
