You will need to make sure that you have an attested marriage certificate if you’ve married outside the UAE. An attested marriage certificate is necessary for opening a file for maternity in a UAE hospital. You’ll be asked for copies and the original attested document.

The certificate or license for marriage will also be attested by the UAE Ministry/Dept of Foreign Affairs. Take note: most people find marriage certificate attestation in the UAE a daunting and complicated process. For this reason, it is best to seek professionals’ guidance and acquire PRO services in Dubai. Outsourcing the job of having documents attested will save you time and money.

Please note it is considered a criminal offense to be pregnant while unmarried in the UAE. In such a case, it is necessary to go to another country to deliver the baby or marry in the UAE before the birth of the child. If you’re working and intend to be back to work following the birth of your child, it’s best to inform your employer. Also, talk to lawyers and legal consultants in UAE so you are aware of all of your rights as per the UAE Federal Law on employment.
