The death must be registered at the Registry Office in the sub-district where the death occurred.
Once the Medical Certificate has been issued the death must be registered at the Registry Office in the sub-district where the death occurred. This must be carried out within 5 days of the death. It is necessary to make an appointment to attend the local Registry Office.
If you are unable to attend the Registry Office, which covers the area where the death occurred you may attend a Registry office of your choice with the particulars of the deceased, in order to make a declaration. This will then be forwarded to the sub-district where the death took place for registration. In such cases, there may be some delay in the certificates being released.
The arrangements for the funeral can not proceed until the death has been registered.
