Expat New Born Birth in Saudi Arabia

Dear All Friends



Assalamu Alaikkum

I want to share my recent experience about Registration of Birth Certificate, MoFA Attestation, Passport for newborn baby in Indian Embassy and adding newborn baby to issue Iqama in Saudi Arabia

For this entire process you should have Valid Iqama so better to renew your Iqama before start this process otherwise nothing to be possible.

If you planned very well entire process will be complete in maximum 3 weeks

Registration of Birth Certificate

First up all you need to get appointment in Ahwal Madani Nasreeyah , So plan 41st or 42nd week of after delivery of baby (Maximum 40th week pregnancy) in order to avoid late registration. Now a days getting Ahwal Madani appointment very difficult so once you planned check every day and hours even minutes to try (Since 2 weeks I try and try day and night, hours and minutes even seconds finally I got Alhamdulillah) Once you get take printout.

In case you didn’t get appointment you can visit direct on 29th day they will allow you

After Delivery of your Sweet baby

Apply Birth notifications from Hospital carefully write spelling of baby’s name and all other details because once entered in computer never ever change.

Attach Parents Passport and Iqama Copies.

Get Birth notification from Hospital which is signed by Medical Director with official Seal

Once again check the details Name and Religion and confirm before leave hospital.

Hi,
Is there any time limit for applying IQAMA for new born?

Yeah within 12 months to apply Iqama otherwise penalty for 1000 riyals

Thank you so much for your quick response...

MOFA SEAL is not required for Indian babies.  i was blessed with baby Girl.  i got birth certificate from Ahwal madni,  i translated it into english.  i submitted the passport application along with english translation of birth certificate and i did not require MOFA SEAL.  i got passport after 5 days.   MOFA SEAL is required for other countries such as Egypt etc and not for Indian citizens.

Hi...
Can anyone plz guide me with the procedure for  endorsing  (adding) spouse name on passport. ..which is important  requirement for getting passport of the baby ...
Eagerly waiting for rply..

Dear fshan

If your marriage certificate which is attested by Secretariat or General Admin./Home Department of the same State Govt. where marriage took place and embassy of saudi arabia in India the process is very simple and easy

Apply to issue new passport and Miscellaneous Services Form ( inclusion of spouse's name in the passport ) with all other documents like Iqama, old Passport

Pay fees for reissue of Passport with original marriage certificate

Within 7 working days you will get new passport which is included spouse name will be issued and they will return original marriage certificate

this is my experience for this issue

Yes i do hav attested  marriage  certificate  ..as well as translated marriage  certificate  wiz attestation. Nd required stamps...
Btw... how much is the required fees to endorse spouse's  name on passport  ..nd re issue  a new one ...nd does it requires  both (husband  nd wife) signatures or their both presence...
Kindly Plz  share ur experience  ...

Fees is same as new passport almost 300 Riyals

Anyone of the passport either Husband or wife enough for adding spouse name for getting infant passport its up to your wish

But my opinion whenever anyone of you in future renew your passport that time you can add spouse name to avoid waste money

Both husband and wife should be presence in their office (Now its compulsory ) even they are not asking

Hi,
"General worker" (As per iqama) can be able to get iqama for his new born baby in saudi arabia or is there any professional restriction?

well brother it is very detailed  thank you very much , but actually there are some similarity between the requirements you mentioned in each process  so I might suggest to the dear brothers and sisters here to make 4 copies of each document .

if I am not mistaken one very important issue  , as far as I know which is traffic violations . you shouldn't have any by the time you try to renew he iqama or add the baby .

I am not sure if that system is still on going but just to add to your appreciated effort .

thank you

i am just visiting here in saudi arabia. im a filipino, my child will be delivered next month. can my wife register our child under her name only? i dont have iqama

Yes thanks

Thank you for detailed information, Is there any new updates on it?

Thank you very much for explaining the process in so much detail - much appreciated.
Regards.

Thank you dear for the notes.
Any idea when the Jawazaat appointment opens? All the time, MOI says there are no appointments.

thanks for valuable information

hi i just want to ask about the birth notification from the hospital and i read a lot about that in
birth notification they only need the first name. but the problem is when they go to Ahwal madani
they follow the name what you have on the birth notification which is only 1 name
now when you go to embassy to make a passport they allow you to put complete name in the passport
meaning more or less 3 or 4 names including your family name and first name. now when they go to jawazat they reject the application because the passport and the birth certificate are not match its either change one of them. if they follow only one name the baby has only 1 name for the rest of his life? who does that. can please share your experince about this coz i really want to avoid this situation
when my time for processing my baby birt certificate. thank you

no idea wahts happening...............

So, I registered my daughter in Ahwal Al Madani (Civil Services) using first name, and had her passport issued with her first name and last name (which is my first name), and MUQEEM / IQAMA ID contains first name, second name, third name and fourth name (second, third and fourth names are my first name, my father’s name, and my family name). I haven’t faced any problem with passport department

ohhhh. Very long procedure .Better give a birth in India and get the passport there and bring the baby .
