Danish and South African Birth Certificates

Birth certificate

South Africa

In South Africa it is very important to be in possession of a copy of your or your child's unabridged birth certificate (full version mentioning both parents) as this document can be requested by immigration authorities or in connection with visa applications. For a passport application it is a requirement that the birth certificate is apostilled. 

Danish birth certificates

For a copy of your Danish birth certificate in Danish/English, please contact the church where your birth was registered.
If you do not have that information, please contact the Ministry of Ecclesiastical Affairs in Denmark. Make sure to include all the information you have about your birth.
