A birth certificate is a written proof that you declared the birth of your child with the municipality within three days of its birth. It is a statement of information including your child’s first name or names, surname, gender, the date and time of the birth, the parents’ (birth) data and the child’s acknowledger.
Where do I apply for this document?
You can apply for a birth certificate at the municipality where your child was registered. This can be easily done online. You will need a DigiD to do so. If you don’t have a DigiD yet, you can apply for one online.
What does a translation cost?
The cost for the certified translation of a standard birth certificate is 45 euros including VAT. This amount is exclusive of an apostille or a legalisation stamp or recorded delivery costs. You can also pick up the certified translation by appointment. If you need more deeds to be translated, then we can offer a reduced rate.
When will the translation be ready?
The certified translation can be ready and sent by recorded delivery within two working days after receipt of your payment. If you need an apostille or legalisation stamp, different turnaround times will apply.
Please keep in mind that you need to sign for receipt. You normally receive postal items sent within the Netherlands the next working day. This varies for postal items that are sent abroad.
