    Default Birth certificate ID

    Hello!

    I need to get a birth certificate for our 4 year old DD to apply for schools. I have been on hold to births, deaths and marriages for too long waiting for someone to answer the phone so thought I'd ask bubhub!

    What ID can you provide for a 4 year old besides a medicare card? She's never had a birth certificate and therefore not passport or bank account so I'm wondering what else can I use?

    Thanks!

    Is bubs birth registered? If so I'm sure you can go online and order a certificate without having to talk with anyone. I ordered my cert for DS2 online and it arrived within a few weeks.

    I've just been in the position for my 2 year old. It's actually your ID you provide. Your child doesn't really have any!

    That's what I was thinking. Have called so many times but never get through. All she has is a medicare card and her red health book.

    Yep. I was also confused. I called a few weeks back and managed to get a hold of someone. That was the qld birth death marriages office.
    And they said my ID stuff was needed. Not hers.

    For a Queensland school you will need her birth certificate. They won't accept anything else. If you go in to births deaths and marriages they should be able to print one straight away for you as she is under 17. The cost from memory is $37.50

    I have 5 kids in 3 different schools in we'd and never had to supply a birth certificate for any of them. I didn't get dd1 until she needed a tax file number at 15. None of my other 5 have one either.
