Certificates Online is currently only available for Urgent Requests that require certificates for immediate use as our focus lies with other high priority tasks. If you can wait for the certificate then please do not apply at this time. We hope to deal with any requests within 15 working days.
We thank you for your patience at this time.
Update: 21 July 2021
Please note any request takes 15 working days to process. Please avoid emailing to check the progress of your certificate request unless over this timeframe, as we are currently receiving an extremely high volume of emails.
There is no priority service currently available. If the request is urgent, you may want to check with other local authorities/NRS who may be able to offer a priority service. However, if the event was registered in Glasgow between 2019-2021, requests can only be made via this service.
