Due to COVID-19 we have changed the way that birth is registered in Jersey, as it's not possible for you to register in person at this time.
How to register your child's birth

Application to register a birth
You need to provide the completed application within 21 days of the birth of your child.
You must also provide copies of the following identification documents:
- if the father and mother are married to each other, you must scan and email a copy of your marriage certificate,
- if the father and mother are not married to each other, you must scan and email a copy of the mother's birth certificate and the father's birth certificate (if a father is being registered)
If you don't have a scanner, free scanner apps can be downloaded on you smart phone or tablet.
If you're registering twins, you must complete separate applications for each child.
