Forums > Living in Kunming > Replacing lost birth certificate

Thank you! Calling around it seems that the fact that a hospital "looks closed" is not the same thing as being completely shuttered. The government office instructed us to start by returning to the hospital.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Replacing lost birth certificate

Does anyone have experience replacing a lost Chinese birth certificate (for a Chinese child)?

From what I can gather, going back to the hospital where the baby was delivered will be fairly straightforward.

Our problem is that one of our sons was born at a hospital which has since closed. What government office might have the records and be able to issue a replacement birth certificate?

Friends have done it recently, but I don't know about demand levels. Capacity is significant, so if you're not going on a major Chinese holiday, there should be availability.

Note that visas can 'not' be paid for or processed as visa-on-arrival when taking the train. You must have a visa sticker in your passport already.

By the by, they recently reduced the border wait time from 1.5 hours at each border to 1 hour, so Kunmingnan to Vientiane travel time is now about 9.5 hours from station to station +/- the 1-hour time change.

I've only been there once, but the food seemed decent, and the yak-butter tea did not come with any of the retching afterwards which is often associated with the brew...


I've been going to their shop occasionally (whenever I need a major repair/overhaul) since 10 years ago. To sum it up, they treat their customers' bikes like their own! Great care and attention to detail combined with professional skills equals a great bike shop.
