  2. My son born in Al-Jubail 11 years back. We have temporary birth certificate. Now we are not in KSA anymore since 9 years. Can we get permanent birth certificate from KSA with the help of embassy or what is the procedure? We cannot come to KSA and take appointments, so please tell us any alternative way.
