What is a Birth Certificate?
A Birth Certificate is a certificate issued by your country of birth to confirm and acknowledge the registration of your birth in that specific country. South African birth certificates are issued by the Department of Home Affairs.
A birth certificate will state the person's full name and parentage, as well as the place and date of birth.
What is a Vault Birth Certificate?
A vault birth certificate is a copy of the actual birth registration form from when the birth was first registered. A vault birth certificate is usually needed to prove the right to citizenship or passport.
