Birth Registrations

 The Registry office based in Stanley, Falkland Islands is the Registry for Births for the Falklands Islands and South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands.

The Registration Ordinance sets out the legislation that governs the registration of births in the Falkland Islands.

In this legislation, it says that in the case of every child born in the Falkland Islands, the mother or father shall give to the Registrar General the child's details within 10 days of the birth. This allows the birth to be registered, the parent must also sign the birth register.

This means that within 10 days after the birth of your child, you have a legal obligation to register it.

The hospital will inform the Registry when a baby has been born but the parents have the responsibility to contact the registry in order to book an appointment with the registrar to register the birth. The registry staff will always try to be as accommodating and flexible as possible.

In the case where the parents are married, the father can come alone to register the birth.

In the case where the parents are not married, the mother must register the birth, but the father must also be present.

The Registration Process:
