Children born to Guyanese parents overseas can now have their Birth registered and be issued with a Guyana Registration Certificate which is used to apply for and obtain a Guyana Passport. 


  • The person to be registered must be born on or after May 26, 1966. Persons born prior to May 26, 1966 will need to make contact with the Ministry of Citizenship, Department of Citizenship and Immigration to enquire how they can obtain citizenship.
  • At least one (1) parent whose name is recorded on the Foreign Birth Certificate MUST be a Guyanese by birth.
  • Birth certificates issued outside of the United Kingdom MUST be Apostilled by the issuing country.
