China Certificate Attestation
Attestation of Chinese Documents
Chinese documents must be authenticated before they can be used in the UAE. Let us handle processing any Chinese personal or business document for you, whether it’s a diploma, birth, marriage, or death certificate, or any other document from China.
It might be difficult to certify documents from China, as the procedure varies based on the kind of document you have and who you need to deliver it to. It will also be necessary to translate the documents into English because most of them will be written in Mandarin or Cantonese. The typical method that papers must follow is given below. However keep in mind that it may differ depending on what you need to certify. To ensure that you are receiving the best guidance, request your free, personalized quote.
If you need to attest a Chinese Certificate for UAE use, you will need to follow a procedure.
The majority of documents first require certification and notarization. A notary public will verify the document’s validity at this point and sign and stamp it appropriately. Certain documents cannot be completed by an agent because they must be personally notarized by the document’s subject. These could be a letter from experience or a certificate for school transfer.
Documents submitted to the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs will often only be processed in Chinese. However, the UAE Embassy will only certify documents in English or Arabic. As a result, they must be translated into English before submission. The Chinese and English versions of this translation will typically be prepared side by side as a bilingual document. The translation and original document are then bound together and sent for attestation.

The documents must have legalization stamps from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in China, before submitting them to the UAE Embassy in Beijing. The ministry will verify if the translation was prepared lawfully and the seal and/or signature on the original document during this process. Other Chinese government certification, such as the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT), may be necessary in specific situations, such as the legalization of a business or commercial document.
Once the document has arrived in the UAE, it needs to receive a second attestation stamp from the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs to confirm that the processing of your document in China was done so correctly. You should confirm whether this needs to be completed by you or not since some employers will take care of it for you.
It’s essential to note that only the government authorities can confirm which documents you need to get attested, as the requirements depend on the purpose for which it is being attested.

Your paper may occasionally also need to be translated into Arabic. Again, it is best to check as your company may handle this for you. If necessary, an accredited professional translator from English to Arabic translates the entire document along with any pertinent stamps.
