Parents must acquire a birth certificate for the newborn and take it to the nearest UAE embassy. These babies need birth certificate from the country of their birth before they can get a birth certificate from the UAE. Parents must apply for birth certificate within 30 days of the birth of the baby.
The embassy will arrange for a return document or passport for the newborn. After the baby arrives in the UAE, his name can be added to the family book.
If an expatriate resident has a baby in his/her home country or a foreign country, he/she must acquire a birth certificate and apply for passport to the relevant authority or embassy of their home country in that country. The parents must then apply for a visa at the UAE embassy abroad for the child to be able to enter the UAE legally.
