Delivery or Birth in Dubai

The hospital your baby is delivered in determination issue a ‘notification of birth certificate’ in Arabic. All expatriates must get both the Arabic and English certificate attested by the Ministry of Health (at Al Baraha Hospital) and Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Documents Required:

• Original + copy of parents’ passports with residence permits

• Copy of attested marriage certificate

• Discharge summary from hospital of mother and child


• Some public hospitals such as Dubai Hospital (04-7075805), Rashid Hospital (04-3371111) and Al Wasl Hospital (04-3241111) have a counter which will issue the Arabic birth certificate. Go there and hand over the documents and receive the Arabic birth certificate immediately.

• For an English birth certificate, go to Preventive Medicine Department at Al Baraha Hospital (also known as Kuwaiti Hospital 04-2710000).

• Get an application form from the Birth Certificate Office. A translator will type your application at the hospital. You can get it attested at the Ministry of Health Counter at Al Baraha Hospital itself.

• Take the documents to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for attestation and Pay Dh150. There is a private company called Medi Express (04-2727772, open till 7 pm), at the Al Baraha Hospital Compound, who can handle all translation and attestations for a fee of about AED 130.

After the birth of your child, do not rush to get the birth certificate. Wait till your wife and child have been discharged from the hospital and you have had a few days’ time to finalize a name for your child, before you proceed to get the birth certificate. However, do keep in mind that the maximum period to register your child's birth is 30 days. You must have a valid health card in order to deliver in a public hospital. Please carry your original marriage certificate & passports with you.
