The consular birth and death registration of British Citizens in Saudi Arabia will be transferred to the UK from 14 January 2015.

From 14 January 2015, UK birth registrations and death registrations in Saudi Arabia will transfer from the British Embassy in Riyadh to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) in the UK.

There are no changes to the entitlement to register a birth or death. The processing time will remain the same. However, you will now need to allow extra time for the documents to be sent to and from the UK.
