Available. May be obtained from the appropriate Public Health Office of the Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs having jurisdiction over the locality in which the birth occurred.
Note: The registration of births of foreign nationals with the Egyptian authorities has been compulsory since 1912, but in many cases the requirements have not been complied with. Birth certificates issued by the Egyptian authorities are, therefore, not always obtainable in such cases. The Mixed Courts in Egypt were abolished on October 14, 1949.
Available. Death Certificates are issued exclusively by the civil authorities (Ministry of Public Health) and may be obtained upon application.
Available. Foreigners of the same religious denomination (all Christians are considered of the same denomination) and same nationality may receive their certificates from the ecclesiastical authority performing the marriage, without regard to the local authorities. Egyptians and all other couples having different religious denominations must apply to the Office of the Shahr el Akari, 14 Sharia Mahdy, Exbekieh, Cairo for a marriage certificate, either by mail or personally.
Available. Police certificates are obtainable by both Egyptians and non-Egyptians who were born in, or who permanently reside, or have resided in Egypt. The Police Certificate, called a "Criminal Status Record" (Saheefat al Hala al Gina'iyya), may be obtained upon application to the police station nearest the applicant's place of residence in Egypt, and normally takes between one and five working days. Applicants are fingerprinted on the reverse side of the application form. The certificate will indicate if the applicant has served prison time, but will not indicate detentions, arrests or convictions without imprisonment. An applicant abroad must apply to the nearest Egyptian consular officer who will fingerprint them and forward their applications to the Ministry of Interior, Cairo. Upon completion, the report is sent to the applicant. The latter procedure usually involves considerable delay. Since the certificates are eventually issued, they must be considered available.
