Texas Birth Certificate Types

These are the different types of birth certificates available:

  • Long-form Birth Certificate. The most comprehensive certified copy of the birth certificate, required for U.S. passports, driver’s license, and dual citizenship.
  • Short-form Birth Certificate. A certified abstract of a birth record. This record will not show the history of corrections. This form can be used for school or sports registration, employment requirements, and insurance claims.
  • Heirloom Birth Certificate. Similar to the short-form, it will contain an abstract of a birth record. Its uses are primarily for framing and display.
  • Birth Certificate to Obtain Election Identification. The birth record will be marked “For Election Identification Purposes Only.”
  • Birth Verification. A birth verification letter will show only the basic information, including the person’s name, birth date, and birth location. However, verification letters are not legal substitutes for birth certificates.
