Apply for birth certificate for births on seagoing vessels

Description

If a child is born during a voyage on a seagoing ship that is entitled to fly the federal flag, there is an obligation to report the birth to the registry office I in Berlin. The parent with custody will file the birth report with the skipper. If the parents are unable to attend, any other person who was present at the birth is also obliged to report it.

  • The parent with custody or, in the event of prevention, another person who was present at the birth will file the birth report with the skipper.
  • The required documents should be attached or submitted at the next opportunity to the registry office I in Berlin. Ordered documents can be sent.

Contact the registry office I in Berlin.

If a child is born on a German seagoing vessel, the notification is mandatory. This applies regardless of the nationality of the parents or the child.
