Important Documents To Make Birth Certificate

The arrival of your newborn will bring a lot of joys and happiness.
Of course the first thing you need to do for your baby is to choose a beautiful name, then you need to make a birth certificate for the baby.

You need to deal with Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN) for the birth certificate. Since it is a government agency, you need to prepare all the neccesary documents to prevent any inconvenience.

Before discharging from the hospital, the hospital will provide you PSR(1) form to fill in your particulars.

Hospital Form

This form is not an official form to make birth certificate in JPN. You need to fill in your particulars and submit the form to the counter staff in the Labour room ( 1st Floor ).

The hospital clerk will help you to fill in the official JPN form with the doctor's signature.

Official JPN Form

Belows are the list of important documents you need to submit to JPN :

1) The Official JPN form with doctor's signature.

2) Wife and husband IC (original and photocopy)
