Oregon Death Certificate Apostille


When you need to apostille an Oregon 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 Oregon Health Authority. Here's what their website says about obtaining one:


Oregon State Vital Records Public Counters are CLOSED, see below for alternative ordering options.


This is the official State of Oregon Vital Records website. In Oregon, the Center for Health Statistics issues certified copies of vital records for events that occurred within the state. We partner with VitalChek for internet orders. You can also order over the phone, by mail, or in person.


Important Notice


Oregon Center for Health Statistics has received an increased number of calls about third-party vendors selling birth, death, marriage and divorce certificates. These companies charge customers high fees to “process” or “help apply” for certificates issued from the Oregon Center for Health Statistics.


For the fastest service, without high fees, we encourage customers to order certified copies only from the Oregon Center for Health Statistics, your local Oregon county health department, or through our contracted vendor VitalChek.


If you have ordered through one of these third-party companies and would like to file a consumer complaint, contact the Oregon Department of Justice Consumer Protection or call 1-877-877-9392.

Vital records are the legal records documenting a vital event, such as a birth, death, marriage, Oregon Registered Domestic Partnership, divorce, or fetal death. Birth certificates are the primary documents used to establish identity. The Center for Health Statistics has birth and death records dating from 1903, marriage records from 1906, and divorce certificates (not decrees) from 1925.
