Order official Georgia Birth Certificates and Vital Records online

How do I get a Georgia birth certificate?


  • • Eligibility: In Georgia, birth certificates are considered confidential and can only be obtained by the person named on the certificate, their parents, or their legal representative. Death certificates are available to anyone who requests them.

  • • Required Information: To order a birth or death certificate, you will need to provide some information about the person whose certificate you are ordering, such as their full name, date and place of birth or death, and the names of their parents. You will also need to provide your own information and identification.


  • • Online: You can order a certified copy of a birth or death certificate online through the Georgia Department of Public Health's Vital Records website. You will need to create an account and provide the required information and payment. Once your order is submitted, it will be processed and mailed to you.

  • • Mail: You can also order a certified copy of a birth or death certificate by mail. You will need to download and fill out a copy of the "Application for Certified Copy of Birth Certificate" or "Application for Certified Copy of Death Certificate" form, which is available on the Vital Records website. You will then need to mail the completed form, along with payment and a photocopy of your identification, to the Vital Records office.
