Applying for a copy of a birth certificate in the Netherlands

Do you want a copy of your birth certificate (geboorteakte)? You will need it, for example, if an organisation asks for it. You can request an official copy (afschrift), extract (uittreksel) or a multilingual international extract (meertalig internationaal uittreksel).

This is how it works in your (future) place of residence

Your (future) place of residence falls under the Municipality of Krimpenerwaard.

Birth certificate

When registering the birth, a certificate is drawn up. This contains the first name or first names and the surname of your child, but also the date of birth, time and place. The names of the parents and the declarant are also listed here.
