Hey guys,

 

I was born in Abu Dhabi in 88. Now at that time the birth certificate was a document issued by the Pakistan Embassy, a sort of a form, it contains all the information i.e. parent names, birth hospital and location, dates and even my picture. I understand this was the process at the time for foreign nationals born in the UAE.

 

Now if you look at the document requirement on the NVC site it says UAE birth certificates should be issued by the Ministry of Health. And there is nothing under alternative documents. So I dont fall under the criteria for valid birth certificate listed here or the one in the country of my nationality. 

 

This is obviously not an uncommon scenario and I hope the NVC will recognize this. Im just worried it'll give them an excuse to issue a RFE.

 

I've tried reaching out to the Pakistan Embassy here and the local authorities to try and get something in writing but as expected currently there is no response. Im thinking of writing an explanatory letter and attaching it with the certificate and hoping there are no issues.

Why don't you take your birth certificate to the UAE Ministry of Health and ask for their assistance.

Erm...because of the lockdown? Tried doing that over email/phone as well as contact the Pakistan embassy.

 

Plus based on the info on their website it doesnt seem they will be able to issue a lost/replacement certificate either. Dont want to wait indefinitely for full services to resume before Im able to get some sort of an answer from them.

You shall try to get the certificate from Pakistan rather than UAE.  Got the document notarized and explain it to the NVC.
