Getting a birth certificate
Once your baby is born, the hospital must present you with a Notification of Birth document that you’ll need to get the birth certificate. Once you get the document, you’ll need to do the following:
1. Go to Al Baraha Birth Certificate Office at Al Baraha Hospital with passports/residence visas belonging to both you and your partner, and most importantly, bring your marriage certificate;
2. For AED50, you get an Arabic birth certificate. You can have the certificate translated into English for additional fee of AED50;
3. You’ll then need to go to the Ministry of Health department to get the certificate attested. You’ll have to pay AED10 for the attestation;
4. The last and final step is to get the birth certificate attested (again) from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
