Regional study on late birth registration, issuance of nationality documents and statelessness

This document was jointly prepared by the Regional Bureau for the Americas of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the Universal Civil Identity Program in the Americas (PUICA), part of the Department for Effective Public Management (DEPM) within the Organization of American States (OAS).

The objective of the study is to conduct a comprehensive analysis of the procedures and requirements established in various countries in the region for late birth registration and access to identity documents that prove nationality. This study will contribute to the subsequent development of Regional Guidelines that will lead the efforts of States to facilitate access to late birth registration and the issuance of identity documents that prove nationality. These guidelines will take into account special conditions that occur in contexts of human mobility.
