It is necessary to register the baby in the city where they were born or in the city where they will live in.
- The passport of both parents
- Maternity medical report (yellow paper)
- Statistical Bulletin (red paper)
- Family book (if you already have it)
If you are married, it suffices for one of the parents to go to the Civil Registry. If not married, or you are foreigners, both of you will be required to go. If you would like to change the order of the baby’s surnames, both parents will also be required to go in person.
This formality must be done 24 hours after the baby was born and within a maximum of 30 days.
Remember to make copies of the page where the details of the baby appear and put them in the folder.
Get a birth certificate in the Registry
In the Civil Register you will also get the “BIRTH CERTIFICATE”. You may need it to make the passport. You may ask for a couple of copies. (They can give you an European one, written in many languages).
