Apostille Spanish Documents Attestation
Apostille Spanish Documents Attestation
Certificate attestation in Spain refers to verifying the authenticity of a document, such as a diploma or a degree, for use in another country. The Spanish attestation process ensures that the document is genuine and issued by a recognized authority.
Document attestation in Spain can vary depending on the document type and the country where you will use it. Suppose you have certificates issued in Spain that you must use in the United Arab Emirates. In that case, you must process the attestation of Spain documents in the UAE Embassy in Madrid.
Procedures that may be required for a UAE visa:
- Birth Certificate Attestation in Spain
- Spain Degree Certificate Attestation
- Marriage Certificate Legalization in Spain
- Educational Documents Authentication in Spain
- Translation from Spanish to English or Arabic
Spain Documents Attestation for UAE
You must have your original documents notarized by a Spanish notary public. This step is essential because it confirms that the document is authentic.
Once your documents have been notarized, you’ll need to have them legalized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Spain. This step confirms that the notary public who notarized your document is authorized.
If the country where you’ll be using your document is a member of the Hague Apostille Convention, you’ll need to have your documents apostilled by the Spanish Ministry of Justice. The apostille is attached to the paper by the Spanish authorities and confirms that the document’s signature, seal, and stamp are genuine.
Apostille countries are the UK, USA, Philippines, India, Netherlands, New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, etc.
The United Arab Emirates is not an apostille country. This means that after you process MOFA Attestation in Spain, you must process the UAE Embassy attestation in Madrid.
If you will use it in other countries that are not members of the Hague Apostille Convention, you must process document authentication by their consulate or embassy inside Spain.
The embassy is located at:
Calle de Alfonso XII, 18,
28014 Madrid, Spain
The embassy provides a range of services for UAE citizens in Spain and Spanish citizens seeking visas or other consular services for travel to the UAE. Some of the services provided by the embassy include:
- Issuing visas for travel to the UAE
- Assisting UAE citizens with passport renewals and other consular services
- Providing information about the UAE to Spanish citizens and businesses
- Facilitating trade and cultural exchanges between the UAE and Spain
Once you have completed the legalization process in Spain, you must submit your documents for attestation to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the UAE. This is the first and only legalization you will need in the country for your Dubai employment visa or UAE residence visa.
It’s important to note that the attestation process can be complex and time-consuming, and requirements can vary depending on the country where you’ll be using your document. You should consult a professional attestation service provider like Benchmark Attestation Services in Dubai to ensure your documents are correctly attested for use abroad.
