UPDATE: Vital Records Fees for Oregonians Affected by the Oregon Wildfires

Sharing the information below on behalf of vital records.

Oregonians who have been affected by the wildfires still need assistance getting certified copies of vital records. To help these families, the Oregon Health Authority will provide certified copies of vital records free of charge starting June 1, 2021 through October 28, 2021 to Oregonians affected by the Oregon wildfires.

There will be no fee charged for a search and issuance of up to three (3) certified copies of a birth, death, marriage, divorce, domestic partnership or dissolution of domestic partnership record if the search or issuance is requested in connection with Oregon Wildfires. Customers may order up to three (3) certificates of each type of record at no charge.

This will be effective June 1, 2021 through October 28, 2021.

The letter I will be sending to the County Vital Records office on May 25, 2021 is attached. I have also attached the FAQs that will be sent as well. We are currently working on web page and communications to staff and other partners.

County Vital Records offices must charge the same fee as the state. The fee is $0 for certified copies of vital records issued June 1, 2021 through October 28, 2021 to Oregonians affected by the Oregon wildfires.

Please let me know if you have any questions or need additional information.
