New Version of Birth Certificate From Today

Ric Carlyon - Friday, February 06, 2015

Justices of the Peace should be aware they might be asked to certify copies of a new-style New Zealand Birth Certificate. 

The Department of Internal Affairs has issued a one-off commemorative version of the document to celebrate 175 years since the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi. 

The certificate is available from today, 6 February 2015, until the end of the year. The Department advises the document serves the same functions and has the same legal status as a regular birth certificate.
