Dates of birth after 20 October2020
Anybody who tries to book with a date of birth after 20 October 2020 will not be able to.
We will update our website frequently with new dates for bookings. If you have an urgent need, please email our team. You will need to provide evidence. Urgent reasons include: a pre-booked holiday, a visa requirement, deadlines with paper-work in another country etc.
- The 42-day limit to register a birth is waived until further notice but as we now have full availability, new parents will soon be asked to register their newborn, if they have yet to do so.
