Certified copies of a birth certificate are available for those born in Minnesota. If the birth occurred outside of Minnesota, contact the vital records office of that state.
To get a certified birth certificate the birth record must be your own or you must have a legal interest. Non-certified copies are also available, but are not accepted for legal purposes.
Drop-off or mail-in transactions whenever possible. If you need in-person help, please schedule an appointment.
We are receiving a high volume of phone calls. You may experience long wait times. Thank you for your patience.
If it's been over four (4) weeks since you ordered submit a Vital records inquiry form.
