For an adoptee, a certified copy of an entry in the Adopted Children Register is the equivalent of a Birth Certificate entry. An entry in the Adopted Children Register will only contain the adoptive details of a person and has no information that relates back to the corresponding Birth Certificate entry. Both full and short adoption certificates can be ordered online.
- Full Certificates: A full certificate is a copy of Adopted Children Register entry and includes the date of the order and the name of the court. It also includes the particulars of the adoptive parent(s).
- Short certificates: A short certificate contains no reference to the fact of adoption and shows only the full adoptive name, gender, date of birth and country or district of birth.
