You don't have to mail your request or travel to Santa Fe to obtain birth certificates!
Many of our Public Health Offices (PHO) offer Vital Records services and therefore can issue birth certificates. Requests for death certificates must be ordered through the Santa Fe Office. Simply visit our Public Health Offices page and search for a public health office near you which offers the Vital Records service. Due to limited staffing in some offices we recommend calling the Public Health Office before you go to insure that they are available to issue birth certificates, as some offices have limited days and hours.
