The short way to the birth certificate

Many Ukrainian women waiting for the birth of their child in Germany wonder how to obtain a birth certificate for their son or daughter. To do so, the child must first be registered at the registry office of the German place of birth. This does not imply German citizenship.
A German birth certificate, certified with a so-called Apostille stamp, together with a translation into Ukrainian, is valid with all Ukrainian authorities. According to the current Ukrainian legislation, the registration of a newborn child at the place of birth or at the place of residence of the parents is done on the basis of a written application. If the parents are unable to do so, this can be done by relatives or by representatives of the hospital where the child was born.
The parents or the child’s legal representatives must apply for registration no later than one month after the birth. If the child was born dead, the registration must be applied for within three days. If the parents were not able to register their child within one month, there is a possibility of “registration with missed deadline” at a consular institution. The following documents are required for this: Certificate of a medical institution about the child’s birth; a medical certificate about the child’s health condition at the time of birth registration; documents confirming the child’s origin (certificate about the parents’ marriage, about the dissolution of the marriage, about the death of the parents or one of the parents, or a relevant court decision). This also applies if one of the parents is younger than 18 years. In order for the child to become a Ukrainian citizen, the parents must take further steps.
