Queensland commemorative birth certificates

Commemorative birth certificates are not official documents and you may buy one online for you or your child—but they cannot be used to prove your identity.

If you need a birth certificate for official purposes (e.g. to apply for a driver licence), please apply for our standard birth certificate.
