Index of Foreign Births Destroyed

Index of Foreign Births Destroyed

Here is the response I received for my request to see the Index of Foreign Births. Below the e-mail is the page of the DOH Retention Schedule which shows when the record was submitted for analysis and it was decided the record was to be retained permanently.

Pursuant to UIPA, I request an electronic copy of the index for certificates of foreign birth (VDR-10, which is to be retained permanently) from the year 1982 until now, with all non-discloseable parts redacted.


Thank you!





Below is the DOH Retention Schedule showing this document to be retained permanently. Please also note that Dr. Alvin Onaka did not designate the index as being restricted because of HRS 338-18, as he notes for the certificates themselves. This clearly shows that the indices are NOT called “vital records” by Dr. Onaka and are NOT considered restricted information by him.
