Newborn Birth Certificate, Attestation, and Visa Process in UAE

Welcoming a new member into your family is an exciting time, filled with joy and anticipation. In the UAE, amidst the happiness, there's a procedural side that new parents must navigate—obtaining the newborn's birth certificate, ensuring it's attested, and then securing a residence visa for the baby. Here's a comprehensive guide to assist you in this journey:

1. How to Apply for a Newborn Baby Birth Certificate in UAE?

  • Hospital Report: Once your baby is born in a UAE hospital, you will be provided with a birth notification. This is the primary document to start the birth certificate application.

  • Registration: Visit the nearest health authority or the Preventive Medicine Department to register the birth and submit the necessary documents: parents' passports, residence visas, copies of the parents' attested marriage certificate, and the birth notification.

  • Issuance: Once the registration is complete and all documents are verified, you'll be issued the official birth certificate, either in Arabic or with an English translation, based on your preference.

2. Why Do You Need Newborn Baby Birth Certificate Attestation in the UAE?

Attestation is the process of verifying the authenticity of a document. For newborns, it's crucial because:

  • Legitimacy: It establishes the document's genuineness, especially when used internationally.

  • Future Procedures: Whether it's school admissions or any legal process within the UAE, an attested birth certificate will be essential.

  • Residence Visa Application: Before applying for a residence visa, the attested birth certificate is a mandatory requirement.

3. How to Apply for a Newborn Baby UAE Residence Visa?

  • Medical Tests: While newborns are exempt from medical tests, parents should ensure their medical tests are up-to-date.

  • Required Documents: Gather essential documents like an attested birth certificate, passport-size photos, health insurance, and parents' visa and Emirates ID copies.

  • Visa Application: Visit the General Directorate of Residency and Foreign Affairs (GDRFA) and submit the visa application along with the required documents and fees.

  • Important Note: It's crucial to apply for a UAE residence visa for a newborn baby within 120 days of their birth. Failure to do so will result in a fine of AED100 for each day beyond this period.
