Apostille for Vermont Birth Certificate

Updated: Jan 19


When you need to apostille a Vermont birth certificate, you will need to make sure to have a certified copy of the vital record beforehand. If you need to order one, your best bet is to go through the Vermont Department of Health. Here's what their website says about obtaining one:


Under Vermont law the attending physician or midwife is responsible for filing a report of birth with the State Registrar within five business days. Once the report of birth is registered in the Statewide Registration System a copy of the birth certificate can be issued upon request. For babies born without a medical professional present, please contact the Vital Records Office for assistance at 802-863-7275 or toll-free in Vermont at 800-439-5008.
