I have registered the birth of my child on the app. What documents do I need to produce to collect my child's birth certificate?

If you are a Singapore Citizen, you will only need to show your NRIC to collect the birth certificate.

If you are a foreigner, you will need to provide the following documents:

  • Passport
  • Long-Term Pass cards
  • or Disembarkation/Embarkation cards

However, if you or your spouse have made edits to any marriage information in the online application, you can only collect the birth certificate at ICA and you will also need to show both you and your spouse's NRIC/ID documents and your original marriage certificate for verification.

As your marriage records will need to be verified at the point of birth certificate collection, you may experience a longer wait to collect your child’s birth certificate.

I registered my child's birth on the app but missed my appointment to collect my child’s birth certificate at ICA. Can I make another appointment on the app?

You can click on “Application status” in the app’s menu bar to access ICA’s e-appointment page directly. On ICA’s e-appointment page, you can request to change the date and time for your appointment.

I chose to collect my child’s birth certificate (BC) at ICA, and I have already made payment. Can I collect my child’s BC at the hospital instead?

If you have already paid for your child’s birth certificate (BC) collection at the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA), you will have to collect your child’s BC at ICA.

Likewise, if you’ve chosen to collect the BC at the hospital where your child was born, you can only collect it at the hospital.

Why can’t I make an appointment on the app to collect the birth certificate(s) at the hospital?

Appointment booking for hospitals is currently not available in LifeSG.

However, you can use the app to make an appointment for birth certificate collection at the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA).

How do I collect my child’s birth certificate (BC) at the hospital?

You will receive instructions on how to collect your child’s birth certificate after you have successfully submitted your child’s birth registration on the LifeSG app.

You can view the BC collection details from the “Successful submission” page, under “Application status” in the app’s menu bar.

When can I collect my child’s birth certificate (BC) at ICA or the hospital?

For birth certificate collection at ICA, you can make an ICA e-appointment with the app. Collect your child’s BC at your selected appointment. If you wish to change your ICA appointment details, please click on “Application status” in the app’s menu bar to access ICA’s e-appointment page.

For birth certificate collection at the hospital, you may collect your child’s BC from the next working day (subjected to your designated hospital’s opening hours, or BC collection appointment).
