Frequently Asked Questions

What are certificate attestation services in Dubai?

Certificate attestation involves the application of a signature or seal by an authorised entity (such as a notary public) or institution, confirming the document’s authenticity. This process can either authenticate the content within the document or the legitimacy of the signatures present on it. For example, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) is required to endorse educational certificates, affirming their validity and making them acceptable for visa applications in the UAE, through a stamp. Foreign nationals are required to provide certificates that have been officially attested to establish their authenticity.

Is attestation of certificates required for obtaining a residence visa?

The UAE, with its immigrant population surpassing 7 million, annually welcomes skilled individuals and families seeking to establish their lives in a land of vast opportunities. To relocate to the UAE with their families, expatriates are required to submit attested certificates as proof of authenticity. These validated documents are essential for visa applications in the UAE, including those for education, employment, and business purposes.

Certificate attestation verifies the genuineness of legal documents. Through this requirement, the UAE verifies that foreign nationals possess the necessary qualifications, knowledge, and skills to take advantage of employment and educational prospects within the country

Why do you need to attest certificates for the UAE?

Whether embarking on a new career or enrolling your child in school abroad, you’re obligated to provide certificates that have been officially attested. The absence of such attested documents could bar entry into educational settings, prevent employment with esteemed organisations, and obstruct legal migration and employment in another country.

For those considering a move to the UAE with family, presenting an attested birth certificate is necessary for your children’s school registration. Similarly, to sponsor your spouse, an attested marriage certificate is mandatory. The process of attestation evaluates the documents’ legitimacy and calls for initial authentication in the country of issuance and subsequent validation from the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs

State Verification

Certificates require verification by relevant state authorities for authenticity, with personal documents typically checked by the state’s General Administration Department and educational documents by the Department of Education. For international use, particularly in visa applications, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the applicant’s home country must certify these documents. This step validates the documents for global use, applying to both originals and certified copies. Citizens from Hague Convention countries streamline this through an apostille from their Ministry of Foreign Affairs, serving as globally accepted certification and easing the attestation process.

UAE Embassy Attestation:

Once the attestation by the issuing country’s authorities is finalised, the documents will be presented to the local UAE Embassy for further attestation before their return to the UAE.

Understanding Apostille and Certificate Attestation:

The Apostille Convention, also known as the Hague Treaty Convention, includes over 126 contracting parties and has 113 countries as participants. This convention simplifies the attestation process, with member countries recognising an apostille stamp as a legitimate form of document authentication. For countries not part of the Hague Convention, the process is called “attestation,” whereas, for member countries, it involves issuing an “apostille stamp.”

Apostille stamps can be applied to a wide range of documents, including corporate documents (such as powers of attorney, company bylaws, and articles of incorporation), as well as educational and personal certificates. Obtaining an apostille for your documents can be a complex and daunting task, but we’re here to simplify the process for you.
