The City of Kansas City, Missouri Office of Vital Records does not accept online orders for birth or death certificates; however, for your convenience, we have partnered with an independent company, VitalChek Network, Inc., to provide this service to you. An additional fee is charged by VitalChek for using this service, and all major credit cards are accepted, including American Express®, Discover®, MasterCard® and Visa®.
Online requests for a Missouri certified birth or death certificate may be submitted through VitalChek’s online request form. The birth certificate cost is $26.25 when sent by regular U.S. mail or $43.75 by UPS. Death certificate cost is $24.25 when sent by regular U.S. mail or $41.75 by UPS.
Please note that while VitalChek’s Web site shows options for marriage and divorce records, the Health Department only contracts with them to provide birth and death records.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 816-513-6309.
