From 29 May 2022, parents will have to register the birth of their newborns via the
LifeSG app within 42 days of birth.
With this, in-person birth registration services will cease at hospitals and the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) Building. Collection of a physical birth certificate is no longer needed.
Following the registration on
LifeSG, parents will be notified to download their child’s digital birth certificate via an ICA e-Service known as the “electronic Retrieval of Certificates and Instant Verification”, which can be accessed on the
ICA website or via MyICA Mobile.
