Public Registry Local and Foreign Notifications – Local Notifications of Death

Public Registry



By Post by sending an email on:


Visiting the Public Registry: The notification of a death can be made by visiting the Malta Public Registry Offices in Mater Dei Hospital, Msida, or in Onda Building, Aldo Moro Road, Marsa in the case of a death in Malta and the Gozo Public Registry, George Borg Olivier Street, Victoria, if the death occurred in Gozo. Public Registry staff will assist the notifier in completing the ‘Declaration of Notification of Death Form’.



The documentation required to notify a death includes:


  • DH35 Certificate of Death and Cause Thereof issued by the medical doctor certifying the death;
  • The deceased person’s Identity Card;
  • The notifier’s Identity Card.

Other documentation, depending upon the civil status of the deceased may be required.


Once the Act of Death is registered the notifier is informed by SMS or email. The Death Certificate can then be ordered from the Public Registry website


The Public Registry requires original documents for registration purposes. Documents presented to the Public Registry, are retained indefinitely in its archives. Public documents that are not in the English language must be translated into Maltese or English. In cases where one or several fields are in a language other than the English or Maltese language, a translation of these fields is necessary for processing the document. Further information can be obtained from the following LINK - Policy for the recognition of foreign public documents by Identità.
