Zimbabwean Birth Certificate

Zimbabwean citizens, including minors under the age of 18, wishing to relocate, travel or get married overseas – will need to present a Birth Certificate during Visa application processes, before marriage ceremonies commence and during the process of applying for foreign citizenship.

To add to this, the Zimbabwean Registrar General does not store all the information that assists in issuing digital Birth Certificate documents on their system, so they would first need to obtain the original birth certificate from their hard copy archives, a process which can sometimes take months to complete.

Thankfully, the Clearance Central team of experts is highly skilled in expediting Birth Certificate applications for Zimbabweans living outside the country and abroad, providing much-needed convenience and swift turnaround times to complete this process.

We offer the following services:

  • Duplicate Full Birth Certificate applications (in the case of loss or damage to the original document that was initially issued)
  • External Birth Certificate applications
