Office of Vital Statistics: Appointments needed for birth and marriage certificates


To adhere to Governor Lou Leon Guerrero’s order for mandatory social distancing of at least six feet in the workplace, the Office of Vital Statistics (OVS) of the DPHSS is requiring clients to make an appointment to obtain copies of birth certificates, marriage certificates, and marriage licenses.

Clients can still walk-in to the office to obtain a death certificate.

The OVS is requesting that all birthing facilities provide a phone number of one or both parents when registering new birth certificates so that OVS staff can notify them when the birth certificates are ready and to make an appointment so that they can pick them up.

This will reduce the number of clients visiting the office and limit the number of people waiting in line for services at any one time.

OVS is located on the first floor, west side of the Ran-Care Building on 761 South Marine Corps Drive across from National Office Supply in Tamuning. Face coverings are required before entering.
