UK Certificate Attestation In Dubai

Like any other foreign national seeking residency in Dubai, UK nationals also have to provide attested certificates to apply for a visa. UK citizens must have their educational certificates attested by the relevant British authorities and the UAE’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA).

In the UK, attestation starts with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) or other local authorities that offer legalisation services. The procedure for getting documents attested in the UK has changed recently. Instead of starting the attestation process with a notary or the British Council in Dubai, all documents must be sent to a solicitor in the UK who verifies their legitimacy and provides a stamp of approval.

We’ve listed the steps of UK certificate attestation in Dubai below:

Step 1: Send the document to a solicitor in the UK.

A solicitor in the UK will guarantee that the document is legitimate and sign it. Give us your documents, and we’ll send them to the UK using a trusted courier service.

Step 2: Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO-UK)

We will submit the certificate to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO-UK) for attestation and legalisation after the solicitor has stamped and signed it. Before submitting certificates to the FCO, British Overseas Territories must have them attested by the local government.

Step 3: Attestation by the UAE Embassy in London

Once the relevant UK entities legalise the certificates, they will be sent to the UAE embassy in London via courier to be attested. The UAE embassy provides the final stamp of approval in the UK; once it attests the certificate, we will send it to the UAE.

Step 4: Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA)

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is the final authoritative body in the UAE that stamps and signs certificates for attestation.
