ANNEXED NOTE

1. Characteristics of data, definitions

Dual nationality is not recognized under UAE law. Children of UAE fathers automatically acquire UAE citizenship at birth, regardless of where the child was born. In certain circumstances, UAE mothers can also transmit citizenship. UAE citizens must enter and exit the country on UAE passports.

The Department of Preventive Medicine under the Ministry of Health is responsible for the registration of births and deaths.
Both births and deaths are to be reported to the nearest health center and the information will be forwarded to the Ministry of Health for registration and for entering into a database.
The information extracted from this database is then passed on to the Central Statistics Department (Ministry of Economy) for statistical purposes.
The information collected on the birth reporting form includes sex of the child, the citizenship and the month of birth. The characteristics such as age, citizenship and occupation of the parents are also included on the form.
