    Registering birth

    In a few short weeks will have baby number three but first in HK. Can anyone advise me how to go about registering the birth. We are from the UK.

    Many thanks,

    Noella,

    The hospital should give you the forms and details on how to register the birth.
    You can also read it here:

    After your baby is born, the hospital staff will advise you to wait for a couple of weeks (to allow transfer of papers from hospital to the registry) before you go to register your child's birth at the birth registry. The one on the island side is in Admiralty.

    Ok read the link from Rani, do I need to notify someone in the UK after registering here?

    You can register your child's birth anytime at the British Consulate in Admiralty without doing it in the UK. See here:-http://www.fco.gov.uk/servlet/Front?pagename=OpenMarket/Xcelerate/ShowPage&c=Page&cid=1065721857576
