Degree Attestation UAE
The UAE government demands that all expats who apply for an employment visa submit an attested degree certificate. The rule applies to all expats; regardless of your country of origin, you will be required to submit attested educational certificates.
Attested degree certificates are needed to apply for an employment visa across the GCC (Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, and Oman).
Degree certificate attestation involves sending educational certificates to a chain of government departments that stamp and sign them to guarantee their authenticity. Each certificate will require around four to five stamps in exchange for a small fee.
