The Public Registry was founded in 1889, and its records date back to 1863. Records kept at the Public Registry include Acts of Birth, Marriage, Civil Union, Cohabitation, Death and Adoption Registrations.
certifikati.gov.mt provides all relative information to obtain an existing Public Registry civil status certificate, including Birth, Free Status, Marriage, Civil Union, Cohabitation and Death certificates. Certificates can be ordered online, and you can have them delivered to an address of your choice, both locally and abroad. Alternatively, you can collect your certificates from the Public Registry Office in Valletta or Victoria, Gozo. The Public Registry Office normally processes an order within six (6) working days.
Public documents issued under EU Regulation 2016/1191 of the European Parliament and the Council, such as birth, marriage, civil union, free status, and death certificates no longer need an apostille authentication and are now accepted by public authorities of another Member State. Citizens can request to attach a multilingual standard form to the public documents. For further information please contact the Public Registry Office on +356 2590 4200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
certifikati.gov.mt allows for secure transactions to take place over the internet. Although it is highly recommended to login using your e-ID account, this is not compulsory. If you do not have an active e-ID account, you can still use this application by manually filling in all the required details.
The Public Registry will only charge your bank account once your order is processed, and the certificate is issued. If there are no records found, no fee will be deducted from your bank account.
