Deadline for transmitting the Declaration of Birth

You have 30 days after the birth of your child to send the declaration of birth to the Directeur de l'état civil.

The deadline is the same for a declaration made with the paper Declaration of Birth or the Electronic Declaration of Birth online service.

A Declaration of Birth transmitted after that deadline entails payment of the applicable fees. For information on the fees for the late registration of a birth, see Fees and Processing Time.

Mailing of the Declaration of Birth

If you completed the paper Declaration of Birth and it was not delivered to the personnel before your departure from the facility where the child was born, you must send it yourself within the deadline provided, to the following address:
