What Official Documents Do I Need To Order My Application For My New York City Official Birth Certificate?

Most of the time, the only document you need to submit an application for a birth certificate is a copy of your photo ID. Once you are ready to get started, you will find that our application assistance services are comprehensive, secure, and easy to follow.

Our services offer help by guiding an applicant along a simple, two-step process:


The applicant will choose one of our premium services, which allow for either an electronic download or a physical delivery of completely filled out and signed application materials, and crucial submission instructions to the applicant’s address of choice.


After following the instructions, the applicant will place the completed application documents along with a check covering their state's application fee and a notarized letter* into a mailing envelope, and mail the items to their state Health Department office.

Once these steps are complete, the individual only needs to wait for approval from the Health Department to receive their official birth certificate. Yes, it's that simple!

*If required by your state, full instructions regarding why your letter must be notarized and how to get your letter notarized will be provided along with application documents.
