If you have just become or are about to become parents and have questions about the registration of your child's birth, we are happy to assist.
Order a birth certificate
If you delivered your child in a hospital or birth centre in the city of Zurich, you will automatically receive a birth certificate.
At the online service desk, you can order additional birth certificates any time (fees occur).
If the parents are not married to each other, it is beneficial if the father recognises his child before birth. You can find the necessary information under the section «paternity recognition».
