What is the procedure for parents to recognize their children?

Requesters for child recognition registration shall submit declarations made according to a set form, and papers, items or other evidence to prove the parent and child relationship to the civil status registration agency. In cases of registering the parent and child recognition between Vietnamese citizens and foreigners or between foreigners, foreigners shall additionally submit copies of their passports or valid passport substitute papers to prove their personal identity.

Within 15 days from the date of receipt of all valid papers, if it is determined that the recognition of parent and child is true and undisputed, the commune-level People’s Committee of the place where the parent or the child reside shall register the parent and child as prescribed in Article 24 of the Law on Civil Status.
