With the introduction of digital birth certificates from 29 May 2022 onwards, parents will no longer need to make a trip to the hospital or the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) Building to collect a physical birth certificate. Parents will have to register the birth of their newborns via LifeSG.
Following the registration on LifeSG, parents will be notified to download the digital birth certificate of their child via an ICA e-Service known as the “electronic Retrieval of Certificates and Instant Verification”, which can be accessed on the ICA website (www.ica.gov.sg) or via MyICA Mobile.
All parents will be required to use LifeSG to register the birth of their child born in Singapore
Parents will receive a digital notification to download their child’s digital birth certificate from an ICA e-Service known as the “electronic Retrieval of Certificates and Instant Verification”. Parents will be given up to 90 days to download the digital birth certificate. Once downloaded, the digital certificate can be stored and saved on their personal devices.
