Certified Copies

Certified copies of vital records are often required for legal purposes such as:

  • Passports

  • Employment
  • Proof of citizenship
  • Governmental benefits
  • Insurance

Fees for Certified Copies

Certified copies of vital records cost $10.00 per certification and may be requested online through our Vital Records Request Service, through U.S. Mail, or in person. Authenticating a certificate for foreign use is an additional $10.00.

For U.S. mail or in person requests, records of vital events occurring within the last five (5) years are only available from the Vermont Department of Health or the clerk of town where the event took place. These records are not available through our office. 

All requests, whether received online or through the mail, are processed within a week. Expedited shipping of records is also available at an additional charge. Expedited orders will be shipped overnight on the day your order is fulfilled.
