Information on when a person is required to produce a birth certificate; on whether people who apply to state enterprises for employment and to state universities are required to hand over the original of the birth certificate and, if so, on whether birth certificates are kept in perpetuity by the state enterprises and the universities; on the application process to obtain a duplicate birth certificate (documentation required, fees, issuer, etc.) [UKR21221.E]

Information on the above-mentioned subjects could not be found among the sources consulted by the DIRB. However, for information on the process to obtain birth certificates and other official documents from Ukraine for Ukrainians living outside the country, please consult Response to Information Request UKR15762.E of 8 November 1993; it is unclear whether the birth certificates and other documents referred to in this Response are originals or duplicates.
