How Can You Get a Copy of Your Indiana Birth Certificate?

A certified copy of your Indiana birth certificate can be obtained from Indiana State Department of Health Vital Records online ordering system. Another way is by submitting a request by mail using form 49607.

  1. Go to the Vital Records online ordering system

    Access the online ordering system, and select Birth Certificate. Click on Continue. The next page informs visitors that birth records from 1907 to present are available, and it tells them where to obtain records prior to 1907. As of October 2014, a certified copy of a birth certificate costs $10.00 and $4.00 for each additional copy.

  2. Enter personal information

    Enter the requester's name, date of birth and address. Next, enter the personal information of the person whose birth certificate you wish to obtain.

  3. Verify eligibility to obtain records

    Upload a copy of a state-issued driver's license or photo ID if you are obtaining your own birth certificate. Otherwise, upload documentation showing proof of your relationship to the person whose birth certificate you want to obtain.

  4. Review the order

    The next screen verifies that you would like to request a birth certificate of the person who was identified in the birth certificate information screen and its cost before placing the order.

  5. Add shipping and payment information

    The final two screens require entering the shipping address, methods of shipping and payment. Once the payment is processed, allow up to 10 business days for delivery.
