Requirements for Registering in Basel

Hello,
I read online that a birth certificate is required to register at the Einwohneramt in Basel.

But, I am wondering if it's possible to use a copy of the birth certificate instead (like a scan), because I am not able to retrieve it right now.

I'm American, student visa.

Many thanks in advance for your answers.

No, if they need one then it has to be certified and not more than 6 months old.

Edit: Another reason why these things can't be done on the spur of the moment.

Re: Requirements for Registering in Basel

My wife and I went to register in Basel on Monday and they did not require our birth certificates. All we had to bring was our passports, rental agreement, job contract and our marriage certificate. It didn't take long at all. We're both Australian if that makes any difference.

Re: Requirements for Registering in Basel

My registration form was sent to the Canton by the job agency/payroll company and they only asked me for a copy of passport and a passport photo. Which was submitted along with copy of agreement for the flat, and a copy of job contract. No birth certificate was required/asked, probably because passport contains information of Birth place and birth date.
