The data entry was completed after asking some questions regarding name, address, etc. and a draft form was printed for me to review and if correct you may proceed to the manager for submission.
After submission of the form, I opted to deliver of my passport to Dammam, which was done by going to the courier section and paying a fee of SAR 35.
All the above process took less than 30mins, which was surprising for me and all staff was very helpful and professional. In the end, don't forget your phone which you deposit at the main counter.

Once you have received the passport, you will have to apply for the Iqama of your newly born child. Recommended: Procedure to Apply for Iqama of Newly Born Baby – Born inside Saudi Arabia
