The Department of Internal Affairs has launched a new All Blacks-themed decorative birth certificate.
The new decorative certificate is now available for purchase, and joins the beach and forest themes for people wanting something a little different from the standard certificate.
Around 180,000 birth certificates are issued every year and Deputy Registrar-General Adrian Jarvis says they are delighted for people to have the option of an official licensed product to mark their special delivery.
“We think that these are a great way for All Blacks fans to show their support, whether they are new babies or older fans wanting a new certificate.
All births must be registered in New Zealand, and this can now be done online through SmartStart -

SmartStart has already had over 80,000 visits and more than 5000 due dates entered.
