How to prepare
Applicants need to fill out the form and go to the hospital where the newborn is borned to issue the Medical Certificate of Birth.
The self-filling form generally has the following contents: parent’s name, ID number, nationality, baby’s name, baby’s household registration address, mother’s residence address, bed number, etc. If you haven’t thought about the baby’s name when you are just hospitalized, you can use a nickname instead (under normal circumstances, the hospital will fill in the words “son of xxx” and “daughter of xxx”). Within 3 months of birth, applicants can go to the hospital in exchange for an official birth certificate. The official birth certificate needs to specify the official name of the child, and it is difficult to change once printed.
- Fill in the “Medical Birth Certificate Self-Filling Form” issued by the hospital where you baby is borned. Some of the contents are filled out by the doctor, and the individual fills in the part (the wrong filling can be crossed out and rewritten). After filling in, you can go to change the official birth certificate.
- Check carefully when you receive the Medical Birth Certificate. If you find any errors, you should contact the hospital in time. The “Birth Certificate” is all printed by machine, and the content “cannot be changed in principle” (this sentence is the original words in the self-filling form, it seems that there is still room for modification, but it is still not recommended to take risks).
- The “Medical Birth Certificate” is a valid legal document for the baby and should be kept properly.
- In order to ensure the validity of the medical birth certificate, the seal should be properly stored after drying, and should not be folded, torn, or over-plasticized.
After the issuance is completed, you can go to the notary office for notarization to get the notarized certificate.
