If your child is born in Qatar, it is essential to have your child’s birth registered to be able to get the identification documents. The Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) issues birth certificates for children born in Qatar. Children born to foreign nationals are not entitled to Qatari nationality. Expatriate parents are responsible for registering their child’s birth with their respective country’s embassy.
