Minnesota Death Certificate Apostille

When you need to apostille a Minnesota death 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 Minnesota Department of Health. Here's what their website says about obtaining one:

Due to the ongoing pandemic, MDH has reassigned many OVR staff to the agency Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) response. For faster service, make your request in person or by mail at a Minnesota county vital records office or order online through VitalChek - Minnesota Death Certificates.

Where do I buy a Minnesota death certificate?

You have three options:

From any Minnesota county vital records office.

Check with the county office close to you about their services during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. County offices may print a death certificate order while you wait.

If you need to change a death record before you buy a certificate, read our Change a Death Record webpage.

From the Office of Vital Records.

The Office of Vital Records does not have walk-in service. We accept applications by mail or fax.

From VitalChek - Minnesota Death Certificates.

VitalChek is a secure vital records processing service. Several Minnesota county vital records offices offer the choice of ordering and paying for certificates online through VitalChek. You may order certificates for births or deaths that occurred in any Minnesota county. VitalChek charges an added fee for this service, and accepts all major credit cards. We do not endorse any other internet ordering service.
