It is a stamped and signed copy of the original hand written form completed by the child’s parents or guardians when they originally registered the birth.
If the unabridged, original birth certificate from Home Affairs was issued within a year of the child’s birth, a Vault copy of the birth will not be required. The unabridged, original certificate will suffice.
