Birth Certifcate

I tried calling your English hotline during work hours but after a brief explanation what ameli is, it hangs up on me. So I will try and ask my question here. I am trying to get a Carte Vitale and need to send in my families birth certificates to do that. My questions to you are

  • Does it matter when the document was issued?
  • Does it need to be translated in French?
  • Will I get the documents back?
  • I wasn't able to find the information on the English page so I hope you can help me further.

Hi  Annemarie,

For european citizens, there's no need to provide any official translation.

You can reach more information and the relevant contact on this following topic called "Register for health insurance".

Have a nice day.

Dear Lorraine,
Thank you for your quick response. I went to the link you sent me however, it was unable to answer the questions I had. Would you be so kind to let me know

  • if the birth certificate needs a certain issue date (i.e within the last 6 months, 1 year etc)?
  • whether I will receive the birth certificates back after sending them in since it takes quite a bit of money and time to get them?
  • You also mentioned that European nationals do not need a translation. My husband was born in the USA but is a European national. Does he still need to translate his birth certificate?
    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Greetings, Annemarie

Hi Annemarie,

To get the answer to your questions, I invite you to refer to the form notice "Application for membership in the French health care system" :

- A long-form copy of your birth certificate, or a short-form copy of your birth certificate showing your parents’ information, or an equivalent document issued by a consulate. (This document must be authenticated, specifically by a legible stamp.).

Civil status documents written in one of the following languages ​​do not need to be translated: Albanian, German, English, Croatian, Danish, Spanish, Finnish, Hungarian, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Dutch, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovak, Swedish, Czech, and Turkish.

If you send the original Birth certificate, your CPAM's office will keep it. You have to contact the CPAM to know if it will be possible to get it back.

Have a nice day.
