Consulate General of India, Jeddah would like to inform all Indian nationals living under its jurisdiction that, as per new guidelines, they can register the birth of their children even after expiry of one-year period in order to get an Indian Passport issued to them. All those who have already applied for registration of Birth of their children after expiry of one year are requested to contact VFS / consulate to get their birth registration certificates.
It may be noticed that while a Saudi Ministry of Civil Affairs’ (or Municipality) Birth Certificate is a mandatory requirement for Birth Registration – in genuine cases, the Consulate may register birth on the basis of Hospital Certificate/ Ministry of Health Certificate. This would enable parents having genuine problems in getting a Municipality’s Birth Certificate (on account of illegal stay, Expired Iqama etc.) to get their wards’ birth registered within the stipulated time period of one year.
