    Hello, everybody, it seems that I am not alone in this problem of getting an appointment. Since Nov 28, 2016, I am trying and until now Dec 3, 2016, hoping there would be an open slot in Nasariya branch. Anyhow, still praying and waiting for the scheduled appointment to be out. But is there anybody able to find out if they will accommodate us even without an appointment there in Nasiriyah, Civil Affairs office?

    Kasi po nghigpitan daw ang mgaprocess ngaun ng mga papel.. lalo na sa iqama.. sana po matulungan mo ako.. salamat po.. godbless.

    Sir dex.. mahirap pong kumuha ngaun ng schedule kasi wla pa silng list.. maari po bang pumunta ng lnd doon agad?.. kasi last month ko po pinanganak ang bby ko.m tapos plano naming umuwi this dec.. kung mghihintay pa po ako ng scedule baka.mahuli kami?.. need po bang mg pa iqama talaga para makauwi si bby or ok lng ang passport? Please help me na man po ohh.

    • Alam ko po kaya mahirap ngayon is there will be new system na gagawin sa mga fees like visa fees this october. Kailangan po na may iqama si baby para po makauwi.. Kasi po para sa VISA. Di po maissuehan ng VISA Without iqama. Pwede nyo na po iprocess ang Passport even without iqama. Ok na po yung hospital notification.

      • Aj says:

        Boss Dex, after po makuha ang Saudi Birth Certificate, other people have informed me that this will need stamping (Not sure what stamp) before it will be official and be translated. May I know po if this is true? Salamat po

        • I remember before that they asked me in Philippine Embasssy to have it stamped. But until this time, I have not yet made it. But I think it is better to get it stamped for future reference. For us Filipino the offcial Birth Certificate is the one that is being submitted in the Philippine Embassy.

    Hi Lheonel,
    I am also experiencing the same. I’ve been trying all day to get an appointment but unfortunately no luck. Your comment was almost 2 weeks now… Were you able to get the appointment successfully or still waiting to open? Also, will it work if we visit Nasriyah personally to get the appointment?

    • Sir sa pagkakaalam ko ay one time fine lang iyon. I don’t know if it increases already./ It would be great if we can have feed back after your completion.

  12. Novee says:

    Thanks, very informative. Can i ask would there be a problem in processing the birth certificate if the mother’s passport&ìqama indicates her single name& single status?

    • They will be looking for the Marriage certificate. Actually I do not know the answer to your question but I would be best for your to process your document as married to avoid any further problem

    Hi dexter praise be to God! My wife just give birth last nov 24 2015 but unfortunately the hospital where she gave birth wont give us the birth notification. We got married on july 8,2015 and that time she was already 3 months pregnant according to the hospital in charge we have to move the date so that we can have the birth notification. It is part of the rules in saudi arabia. How we will do that? I have friends from other hospitals who were issued birth notification even they got married after delivery. I have raised this issued to our embassy but they cannot help us also. My child already have passport and birth certificate from philippines nso but still we cannot process his iqama because we need the birth notification from the hospital. Our son already 7 months old now and we want to bring him home in dec 2016 please help us

    Hi Dexter!
    It’s been 3 months now since my wife gave birth to our daughter and until now i haven’t process her birth certificate. We encountered problem with regards to our marriage certificate, it does not have a seal from saudi embassy in our country(which we are not aware of). We just received the document few days ago. My question is aside from the penalty (50sr) for the late registration, is there a duration given by the government wherein we must register our newborn baby? Secondly, online appointment for the jeddah is not available. Can we just choose other city or region instead for compliance or having the print out required? And lastly can you give me some link wherein i can get info in processing my baby’s passport/iqama and medical insurance? your response will be of great help for me and i really apreciate it. Thanks and God bless!


    • I believe it should be registered before 1 years old. But I am not sure about the conformation aof this

      Secondly, online appointment for the jeddah is not available. >> There should be from jeddah. I believe all major city is available. They will check the birth certificate.

      For the Passport it depends on what nationality are you. For the iqama normally the company is the one who process this matter as long as you give the birth registration to them.

  27. Alexandru Tudose says:

    Hello Dexter. I found great information on your blog. Regarding the obtaining a birth certificate. I am in the same situation as you were before:) I am late with the registration due to booked places. So, our child was born 1.1.2016 and they booked me 4th February for MOI. As I understood I will pay a 50 SAR fee. Do you know how can I pay it. I tried with my Internet Banking, I choose Civil Registration, birth registration and put my id number, birth date and all the information and the message said that the customer can not complete the action. Did you experienced this situation? Regards, Alexandru

  31. Atif says:

    How are you?
    Can you please tell me how did you pay the penalty for your child?

    • I just paid it through their cashier. Without receipt

      • Dr. Zeeshan Siddiqui says:

        Dear Brother,
        Your post and comments are very helpful. I have an appointment after 2 days (04 Jan ’16). I had a baby-girl born on 29 Nov ’15. As my new born came in this world a few days early, I am now late for my ‘already’ booked appointment. Unfortunately, I was unable to find any recent one.

        Can you please kindly tell me the procedure of PENALTY PAYMENT in detail please? Like how did you pay? from which window? before or after the submission of documents? who told you to pay? Please elaborate it completely.

        Thanks for your wonderful job.
