Birth certificate certification

I was born in Canada and have an Irish passport. I called the English Ameli number and was told that to apply for a carte vitale I need a long form birth certificate stamped by Ireland. I have since found out that the Irish authorities won't certify documents from Canada. Would a Canadian long from birth certificate authenticated in Canada suffice? Or do I need the Irish Foreign Birth Registration certificate stamped in Ireland? Or both? I want to make sure that I've got all the right documents before I apply.

In order to be covered Under the French Health system, you have to provide proof of Identity :

- the original Birth certificate with the names of your parents,

- a RIB (relevé d'identité bancaire aka the bank details),

- a copy of your passport (a Canadian one) or copy of your Identity card,

- the form S1106 "Application for membership in the french health care system",

You can provide your original Birth certificate from Canada, with a copy of your visa or resident permit, and an official translation into French.

To prove that you are living in France:
• one utility bill, if you work
• or three utility bills for the past three months, if you don't work.

The processing times vary depending on the type of files and the number of files being processed by your caisse primaire d'assurance maladie (CPAM).

If you need help regarding this request, you can contact the CPAM’s English or French Advice Lines.
