Jersey City/Hudson County Birth Records


After nearly 15 years of having to obtain birth certificates from the State Office of Vital Statistics & Registry in Trenton, the Jersey City Office of Vital Statistics is now able to issue birth certificates for ALL who were born in the city regardless of their date of birth. 

For those born between 1918 - 2021, Jersey City will issue birth records from a database provided by the State’s registrar’s office. These records will be accepted by the N.J. Motor Vehicle Commission and the U.S. Department of State for passport issuance. 

The Jersey City office is taking appointments for the issuance of the birth certificates at (201) 547-5150.
