INTRODUCTION OF SECURE PAPER BIRTH AND DEATH CERTIFICATES

The Department of Registration and Citizenship within the Ministry of Border Control and Employment Services hereby advises the public that, effective February 25, 2019, Turks and Caicos Islands' Birth and Death certificates will be replaced by a secured paper certificate.

These new certificates, which will have several security features, is intended to minimize the illegal production of fraudulent documents, which has become prevalent in recent years. All stakeholders locally and internationally will be briefed on these changes.

This initiative is in keeping with our aims to improve the security and integrity of Government-issued documents within the Turks and Caicos Islands. 

Additional information including our forms can be found on the website www.gov.tc under the Ministry of Border Control and Employment Services.
