People can now apply for birth and death certificates through a new electronic platform launched by the Dubai Health Authority.

The new service kiosks are at DHA hospitals, including Latifa Hospital, Dubai Hospital, Rashid Hospital and Hatta Hospital. Documents can be printed in English and Arabic, eliminating the need for legal translation.

The platform is called Al Hamd and was launched on Thursday at Arab Health 2020.
