Original birth certificate

Recommended Posts


Hi people,


Is there any way to obtain an original birth certificate from China? My girlfriend's daughter who is 2 years old needs her original birth certificate, we have a copy and her passport, as well as mother's passport, marriage certificate of daughter's parents and copy of the father. Anyone has any contacts in Dalian area or someone who can help us. Note to make we live in UK and my girlfriend (mother) is Belarusian. 


Thank you in advance,

Birth certificates in China, at least for use overseas, are normally issued by the local notary. I suggest you contact the Dalian notary and ask what documents they need from you to issue a birth certificate.




The official website requires registration first, and it's in Chinese, but there's a suggestion you can do some things online:






(Don't be confused by the term "notary." Notaries in China are effectively government agencies and have much more authority than in other countries.)
