I have a very simple request but I need the answer quickly and would be very grateful if you could oblige me with the same. Could you please let me know how to get a duplicate birth certificate from Kuwait as I would like to complete a number of procedures in my country and these would be incomplete without the birth certificate.I have misplaced my earlier certificate.Please let me know as to how and where to get it from and what are the requirements.
Answer: The procedure is very simple and you should face no difficulty at all in getting the birth certificate. If you were born in Kuwait and you have lost or misplaced your original birth certificate you can request for a duplicate from the Births and Deaths Registration Center in Maidan Hawalli. All you need is a copy of your Civil ID card. You will also need a copy of the birth certificate if you have any. In case you don’t have a copy of the birth certificate, the birth date and location and the birth certificate issuing center must be known. You will be given the duplicate certificate for a nominal charge but you will have to get it translated into English and attested by Kuwait’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Shuwaikh before you can use it in your country.
