Birth Certificate Attestation for UAE

Birth certificates are the only form of identification for children. It contains the child's legal name, place of birth, and the names of the parents. As such, a birth certificate is an essential part of any applications you fill out for your child in the future, at least until they come of age.

A birth certificate is categorized as a non-educational/personal document, an important distinction since it decides which relevant authorities will process the attestation. Usually, personal documentation is sent to different government ministries and administrations before the attestation is completed. These authorities include:

  • The Government from the Country of Origin
  • The Ministry of Foreign Affairs from the Country of Origin
  • The Embassy of the Country of origin in the new country
