First of all, I would like to thank you for your noble service in providing legal advice to desperate expatriates.
My son was born in Kuwait two months ago. When I got the birth certificate, one civil ID number was mentioned on it. When I paid for the Ministry of Health (MOH) medical insurance, the same number was mentioned on the medical insurance card.
When I went to get the residence (iqama), a different civil ID number was mentioned on the residence stamp pasted on the passport. This makes my son have two different civil ID numbers. How should I correct this?
Answer: We advise you to check the number on the birth certificate because you can’t have a Civil ID number for the baby on the birth certificate because you still have not even applied for the baby’s Civil ID at the time of the issuance of the birth certificate.
The only Civil ID number that the birth certificate can have is that of the father of the child.
