Making iqama for new born baby in dammam

As salaam walaikum,

My baby is born in dammam on 16th sept 2017. These days  civil affairs (ahwal madani) are issuing new type of birth certificate (smaller in size). I have received this new one for my newborn baby last week of september 2017 and got passport. Then I submitted to make iqama for past 3 weeks but its not been successful.

Nowadays a record is created in absher once certificate is issued by ahwal madani. This was not the case earlier. Passport (Jawazat) used to create a record in absher. I dont know if there is some issue in linking between these 2 departments.

I have submitted passport and other documents to my company HR and initially they were asking to pay dependant fee. I took the print out and told them that its already paid (Infact for my elder son i had paid fee in july and now its not showing in absher (this is another headache to find out where money went) so i paid again in Oct 1st week and that is showing in absher. Also i have paid for my new born) ... Sometime the guy to whom i submitted documents is asking whether they was some issue in ahwal madani I told him there was no issue there and i got the birth certificate without any issue.

Is someone facing any issue? Medical insurance is done. MOFA attestation not done yet, is it required? Please help. Any procedure left out?
