The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has announced that Birth and death certificates can now be issued at private hospitals in Dubai. Previously, only a public hospital in Dubai could issue these documents.
DHA authorities said HMS Mirdif Hospital and Medcare Hospital for Women and Children can currently provide this service. In the future, other private sector hospitals will be able to offer it in phases.
Additionally, the DHA’s customer happiness centre in Al Jaddaf is offering the service to residents. The document will be provided as an e-certificate and a physical one.
Al Karama and Al Rashidiya medical fitness centres will no longer issue the documents as the service has been extended across hospitals.
By early 2023, more hospitals will provide the service “once the DHA reviews the procedures and processes … to ensure they are in line with the protocols.”
