Registering a Birth
We Are Moving
On the 24 February 2020 the Enniskillen office for the Registration of Births, Deaths, Marriages and Civil Partnerships will be based at County Buildings, East Bridge Street, Enniskillen BT74 7BW (beside the Courthouse). Telephone and email contacts remain unchanged.
To accommodate our relocation we will be closed to the public on Friday 21 February, however the Omagh office will be open for urgent registrations.
When and where should I register?
By law, your baby’s birth must be registered within 42 days of the date of birth.
If the birth took place in Northern Ireland it can be registered in any District Registration Office within Northern Ireland.
What will I receive?
Once the registration is completed, the Registrar will give you one free short birth certificate and an infant registration form (HS123) to register with your family doctor and obtain your child’s medical card. Birth certificates, either long or short, can be purchased at the time of registration for £8 per copy.
The Registrar’s Office can also provide help and advice about the following issues:
- re-registering a birth, for example, if you want to add the father’s name after the initial registration
- recording name changes.
Detailed information about all these topics is available from the NI Direct website.
