New Birth Certificate Law in the UAE

New Birth Certificate Law in the UAE

  1. Birth certificates in the UAE have been made easier to obtain!
  2. In short, a marriage certificate is no longer the main requirement to qualify for a birth certificate.
  3. For example, in cases where both parents are present, a notarized confirmation that the child is theirs, replaces the previous requirement of a marriage certificate, all together.
  4. In other words, there is no longer a minimum requirement for the marriage duration, as was the case before.
  5. In those cases, where the father is unknown, a specialized court would issue an order for the issuance of the birth certificate, on the basis of the mother’s undertaking.
  6. This is by virtue of a new Law No. 10 of 2022, Regulating Registrations of Births and Deaths in the UAE.
  7. Which cancels the previous Law No. 18 of 2009.
  8. And comes into effect on October 15, 2022.
