Switzerland, as one of the members of the Hague Treaty Convention, legalizes its documents through Apostille – can be used in 119 nations worldwide. However, the United Arab Emirates is not an Apostille country. Therefore, foreign nationals who want to work, live, and study in the UAE need to have their documents attested.
For attestation, foreign nationals need to complete full attestation from the issuing country of the certificates they have, then UAE attestation.
