When should a birth be registered

When should a birth be registered?

According to the CRC, the child should be registered “immediately after birth,”

which implies a defined period of days rather than months. Most countries have a

legal provision for registering births of children within a prescribed period.

The Iranian Registry Act stipulates registration within 15 days of birth. The day of

birth and holidays right after the deadline are not counted. If the birth takes places

during traveling, the date the parents reach their destination will be accountable.

For non-registration or late registration, sanctions have been imposed by law but

they are not enforced.
