Can I Get a Replacement Certificate If I Am Overseas?
Lost your important documents? If you’re based overseas, or have been in the past, it may seem like a tricky situation ordering a replacement. But whether it’s a birth, marriage, death or adoption certificate – it can actually be very simple getting an official copy online. Read on for our guide to non-UK replacement certificates.
Approximately 5 million British-born people live outside the UK, with around a million in EU countries. Why? Some move for family, others for work, including the military, and many simply for a better life. But with such a big move, it’s easy to lose important documents along the way. Birth certificates, marriage certificates, adoption certificates and death certificates are all documents which can be misplaced or left behind.
As a result, many people have to apply for an official copy of their certificates while based in another country. Is this possible? It is with UK Certificates. Our simple, fast and affordable services allow you to order the replacement certificate you need and have it delivered directly to your non-UK address.
What about non-UK certificates?
It’s not just people based overseas that face this problem. On the flipside, there are many people who were born abroad, some in the military, or married abroad and had their certificates registered with overseas British embassies. Getting access to these certificates may seem difficult, but with UK Certificates it’s as simple as 1-2-3:
1 – Fill in your application form, providing us with as many details as you can
2 – Choose your service level and make your payment
3 – Receive the birth, marriage, adoption or death certificate you need from overseas or from the UK delivered to your overseas address
