Home > Certificate Services > UK Birth Certificate Replacement
You can order a replacement UK Overseas Birth Certificate below which is government-issued and guaranteed to be accepted by all UK authorities. For overseas clients, you may need to check with the person you are presenting the certificate to whether they need any additional validation on overseas documents. Please feel free to call us on +44 (0) 333 088 1142 if you have any questions.
Note 2: Please be aware that any certificate issued after 2006 will only be available from the British Embassy in the country you were born. We may still be able to obtain the certificate for you from a local registry office, but be advised that this is likely to take longer than the stated timespan.
Note 3: Stated delivery times are in addition to the time taken to complete the service chosen.
Note 4: If you are applying for a British Passport, but were born overseas as a British Citizen, you may be required to obtain a full birth certificate from your country of birth along with a translation into English. This is not covered by this service and we advise that you contact the Passport Office to clarify this before ordering.
