Registering a birth

Have you had a baby? You have to register the birth at the municipality in time. After registration we will issue a birth certificate. We will register your child in the Personal Records Database (BRP). By registering your child, you officially record the name of the child.

Under the heading ‘Doe op tijd aangifte’ you can find the time limit up to when you can register your child.

Registration online  

You can only register the birth online in case:

  • Your child is born in the LUMC.
  • You give authorisation to exchange information between the municipality and the LUMC. This can be done by ticking the box in the form.
  • At least one of the parents should have the Dutch nationality.

Are you not married or registered partner? And your child is not acknowledged before birth by the father or co-mother? In that case you can register the birth online and may arrange acknowledgement of the child at a later date. Do you want to arrange acknowledgement right away? Please make an appointment to visit the Stadskantoor.

Are you not able to register the birth online? Please make an appointment to visit the service desk at the Stadskantoor.
