Procedures and fees to obtain birth certificate (acte de naissance)

Patrick a fait une demande de Liberté d'accès à l'information à Ministry of Justice

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

La réponse à cette demande est très en retard Ministry of Justice aurait déjà dû répondre à la demande (détails). Vous pouvez vous plaindre en Solliciter une révision interne .

Dear Ministry of Justice,

I would like to ask for the following information under Law no 04/2013 of 08/02/2013 relating to access to information.

I would like to get a birth certificate (acte de naissance not attestation de naissance) but I couldn't get relevant information. How can I get it? Where should I request it and how much is the fee to pay?

Yours faithfully,

Dear Patrick,

Thanks to a tweet from Alain Murara, I can tell you that you can now complete the process to obtain a birth certificate in Rwanda via the government's new Irembo online government service portal:

Here is a link to the service page on Irembo with instructions for how much the procedure costs and what documents you need to provide:

Hope that helps!
