Information about the project
New Born Baby Bundle
Having a baby is a deeply rewarding experience, particularly when registering a newborn requires several documents from several governmental bodies. The process of registering a newborn baby in the UAE involves the local health authority, the hospital, the department of naturalization and more. This can cause frustration amongst the masses. Therefore, the need for a productive and less time-consuming process was required. Residents and citizens struggle to navigate multiple entities to find out the proper procedure & information they need while they provide the same information multiple times through the journey of registering newborn to applying for all the official documents. In addition, they need to make multiple payments to different entities wherein the current process takes anywhere between 5-8 days to complete by visiting entities multiple times during the process. Overall, there are five entities involved, five visits are required, fifteen documents must be submitted and copied over twenty four times to complete this process.
