How to Apply for a Report of Birth in Abu Dhabi

In a previous post, we shared some information about how Filipinos can apply to get married in Abu Dhabi. In this article, we will talk about another essential topic for Filipino families abroad: applying for a child’s Report of Birth.

What is a Report of Birth? Basically, it serves as a declaration on the birth of a Filipino child abroad. Both the child’s parents may be Filipino citizens, or at least one (1) parent is a Filipino. The report must be made at the Philippine Embassy or Consulate General that exercises jurisdiction over the child’s place of birth. This would lead to the registration of the birth with the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA). It would also enable the child to subsequently apply for a Philippine Passport.
