Rules on birth, marriage & death certificate copies changed



The regulation that certified copies of birth, marriage and death certificates are valid only for six months has been removed, the Registrar General’s Department said.

Accordingly, a certified copy will not be invalid after six months.

The department said that if there is a certified copy of any certificate issued, there is no need to obtain a new copy.

The Registrar General’s Department has informed this to the Ministries of Education, Foreign Affairs and the Departments of Immigration and Registration of Persons.

However, the Registrar General’s Department said that a new copy will be issued if an amendment has been made to a birth, marriage and death certificate.
