The Office of Vital Records registers births and deaths that occur within the city limits of Austin. Birth and death records are confidential and certificates are available only to the person named on the certificate, immediate family, or legal representatives with proper documentation.
The City is working to modify our operations and staffing due to COVID-19. The City’s goal is to maintain the health and safety of City employees and the community at large, while providing City services and maintaining social distancing.
As of March 17, 2020, the Office of Vital Records is closed to the public. Staff will be operating alternative service models for delivering food, online assistance, and distributing benefits. We are continuing to process mail-in, online, and phone orders at this time.
