Birth Certificate Attestation

A birth certificate serves as the primary identification document for minors, detailing the child’s legal name, birth location, and parental information. This document is indispensable for any future applications involving the child until they reach adulthood. Birth certificate attestation is mandatory for a UAE residence visa. This attested birth certificate process confirms the document’s legitimacy and compliance with the standards of the UAE government.
Issuing a birth certificate in the UAE can be summarized in the following steps:

  1. Obtain a Birth Notification: Secure a birth notification from the hospital where the child was born.
  2. Visit Health Authority: Take the notification to the relevant health authority (e.g., Ministry of Health and Prevention or Dubai Health Authority), along with parents’ passports, visa copies, marriage certificates, and Emirates IDs.
  3. Submit Application: Apply for the birth certificate, typically requiring an Arabic application form. Translation services are available if needed.
  4. Ministry of Foreign Affairs Attestation: Have the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs attest the Arabic birth certificate for use abroad.
  5. Translation (if needed): Translate the attested certificate into English or another required language, followed by further attestation.
  6. Fee Payment: Pay the applicable fees for issuing and attesting the birth certificate.
  7. Collect the certificate. Pick up the birth certificate from the health authority or opt for delivery, if available.
