Contact Cuba City Hall through email, phone, address or online at Cubacityhall.com. While other services exist for obtaining Cuban birth certificates, Cuba City Hall is more often recommended for those requiring this document. The service is part of Havana Journal (Havanajournal.com), which has numerous business connections with Cuba.
Fill out the Cuban Certificate Order Form. This can most easily and quickly be done online through the Cuba City Hall website. A print option for the form is available, which can be filled out by hand and mailed to Cuba City Hall.
Confirm all information before sending in the order form. Whether done online or in print make sure the information is as accurate as possible. The more information offered on the form the easier it is to find the document.
Pay for the document. Since relations between Cuba and other countries continue to be rocky, it is expensive to bring anything, including legal papers, in and out of Cuba. As of January 2011, a personal copy of a Cuban birth certificate costs $295, while a legalized copy costs $495.
Wait for the document to arrive. Cuba City Hall sends a photograph of the document once it has been located, but like any other official transaction, obtaining a birth certificate can take several weeks to complete.
