How to register birth

If you want a birth to be registered at the Consulate General you will need to fill in an application form and send us the originals of the following documents:

There is no obligation to register your child, but by doing so you will receive a Gambian-style birth certificate and a permanent record of the birth is maintained at the Consulate General. The certificate is also required when getting married and it can also be submitted in support of a Gambian passport application.

You will receive one certified copy of the birth certificate free at the registration.

Original documents will be returned to you.
