Issuing vital statistics certificates and certified copies of vital records


With an application, you can apply for evidence from the archive regarding marital events which occured in Estonia. Based on an application, we also issue transcripts of acts compiled in the Tallinn Vital Statistics Department from 1926, including transcripts of acts compiled in the Mustamäe and Nõmme sector.

In order to receive a confirmed transcript from a document compiled in a Vital Statistics Department in Tallinn or Nõmme or in an additional office, please go to the Tallinn City Archive.

If you require information about a marital event which took place before 1 July 1926, please go to the National Archives.

Which recurrent marital event evidences are issued?

Marriage certificate, divorce certificate, death certificate and name change certificate.

Marital event certificate shall be issued to you about yourself, your minor child and ward.

In addition, a marital event certificate is also issued to a representative. A representative must have an authorisation with a power of attorney.

A certificate about the marital events of a deceased person shall be issued to an applicant in case of legitimate interest.

If the details of a person’s marital event (birth, death, marriage, divorce) have been included in the population register, the person does not have to submit the government of Estonia or local government a certificate on paper. State and local government institutions and other public authorities must be guided by the details included in the population register and cannot require a statement on paper.

A recurrent marital event certificate can be issued, as required, in Estonian, English, German or French. In addition, we issue marital event certificates pursuant to the Convention on the Issue of Multilingual Extracts (CIEC certificates) concluded in 1976 in Vienna to countries that have joined the convention.

Please find the list of countries here CIEC.

Certificates are issued on paper or in encrypted form (digitally).
If you want the certificate to be encrypted (digitally), you need to make sure that you can use it, as this is a .pdf file that has an official digital signature. When printed on paper, it has not the official signature and the seal.

  • Reception is subject to a general queue.

    You need to fill in an application on the spot.

    If possible, we shall issue the certificate to you while you wait but no later than within five working days.

    If you cannot come and apply for the certificate yourself, a person authorised by you with a power of attorney can do this for you. The power of attorney can be sent ahead of time via e-mail, by mail or submitted on the spot on paper.
