Hi Tarek,


Thanks for your Question.


As you were born in the UK before the British Nationality Act 1981 came in to force you are a British Citizen (assuming you were not born to diplomat parents):-


No British passport are issued via the FCO in the UAE. You will have to apply for a UK passport to the Regional Centre in Dusseldorf. Full details here:-


Good luck.
