Victoria has declared a State of Emergency due to coronavirus (COVID-19).
From 11:59pm on 31 May, 50 mourners can attend a funeral in person as well as the people required for the funeral, such as the officiant or funeral company staff. This applies to both indoor and outdoor funerals. If a funeral is held in a home, the restrictions on private gatherings apply. This means up to 20 people are allowed. The officiant and funeral staff, who are required for the service, are not included in the limit.

This section provides information about how deaths are registered in Victoria. Once the death has been registered (usually by the funeral director), you can apply for a Victorian death certificate.
