What is a long form
Texas birth certificate?


A Texas long form birth certificate is an official Texas birth certificate that contains personal information so it’s not recommended for everyday use. Texas long form birth certificates will display any birth record amendment corrections that have ever been made to your legal Texas birth records.

This type of legal Texas birth certificate is normally required and universally accepted by all U.S state and federal government agencies for immigration, proof of newborn’s identity, Native American heritage verifications, passport applications and renewals, traveling abroad, paternity issues, dual citizenship applications, and for Indian registry purposes.

We always recommend ordering at least one long form birth certificate copy and then as needed you can order additional copies that are the short form versions.
