BRITISH CITIZENS in Peru only. UK birth registrations and death registrations in Peru will transfer from the FCO in the UK.

BRITISH CITIZENS: From 14 January 2015, UK birth registrations and death registrations in Peru will transfer from the British Embassy in Lima to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) in the UK.

There are no changes to the entitlement to register a birth or death. The processing time will remain the same. However, you will now need to allow extra time for the documents to be sent to and from the UK.

See www.gov.uk/register-a-birth or www.gov.uk/register-a-death for further information.
