Certified copies of birth and death certificates are available from the Indiana Department of Health (IDOH) online with payment using a credit card through the Vital Records Online Ordering System. If you prefer to pay by check or money order, please submit the request via mail.
You may also obtain a copy by visiting the Local Health Department where the birth or death occurred. (Check here to find the county office locations). IDOH does not provide on-site service. For additional information or questions contact IDOH Vital Records at (317) 233-2700.
If you need a copy for identification purposes (out of country travel) you must have the birth certificate authenticated (an Apostille Document) by the Secretary of State Office, (317) 232-6531.
For American Citizens born outside of the U.S., you will need to contact Bureau of Consulate Affairs.
