Oregon State Vital Records Counters are CLOSED starting March 20, 2020 until further notice.
Customers applying in person use self-service kiosks to place their orders. The identity of customers will be checked using a questionnaire based on public records generated by LexisNexis. To generate this questionnaire, you will be asked to enter your Social Security Number (SSN) as part of the application process. Your SSN and answers to the quiz will not be stored with your application information.
Persons ordering must show a valid ID or alternative identifying documents. If you cannot provide information or documents, we recommend that you have another eligible family member order your record for you. The person who comes to the office to order the record must be eligible to order it.
The non-refundable fee for one record search is $28.00 at the public counter. This fee includes a $3.00 identity authentication fee in addition to the $25.00 record search fee. Additional copies of the same record ordered at the same time are $25.00. For long form, full image birth certificates, there is an additional $5 fee per certificate.
Payment can be made by credit card, debit card, cash or money order. If a personal or business check is used, it must be accepted by the electronic funds transfer software (EFT). A credit union ATM is available in the building. Once an order is submitted and a record search begins, no cancellations or refunds can be made for the first record search fee.
