You can request and pay for most Burlington vital records online.

The Online Vitals Request system is available through InVoiceCloud eBill and allows you to make requests and pay for them using a credit card or electronic check.

Online Requests are $15 per record for regular processing. Also, there is a non-reimbursable convenience fee per record of up to $3 on Credit Cards and 35 cents for E Check payments

Impounded Records

Some records are restricted (impounded), i.e. parents were not married at the time of the birth or the father is not named on the record. Only those listed on restricted records are entitled to obtain a certified copy and identification is required. Please call the office at 781-270-1660 prior to ordering such records online. You will be asked to fax a copy of a valid photo ID along with your signature.

Reimbursements In the Case of No Records

If we do not have the requested document in our records the processing fee will be reimbursed by the Town via a check. This will take up to 4 weeks.

If you are not certain that we have the record you are requesting, call us at 781-270-1660 to confirm before you submit your request.
