US Birth Certificate Attestation

To apply for a residential family visa in the UAE, US nationals must provide attested birth certificates for their children. Getting Birth certificates attested proves that they are the legal parents of the children they intend to bring to the UAE.

Birth certificates issued in the US have to be vetted in the US before being submitted to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the UAE.

Once the Ministry of Foreign Affairs gives its stamp of approval, the attestation process is completed, and your attested documents can be used to obtain a residential visa for your child.

The attestation of US birth certificates requires several steps. The birth certificate will first need to be sent back to the US, where it will be handed over to various authorities as needed. After they sign and stamp the birth certificate, it will need to be submitted to the UAE embassy in the US before being sent back to the UAE.

The Process Of Getting A US Birth Certificate Attested

US birth certificate attestation can be time-consuming and stressful when attempting to do it yourself. Still, when you leave it to the professionals, we can complete it swiftly in a matter of a few weeks.

In our experience, submitting an Arabic translation of the copy of the birth certificate can help speed things along; however, the original certificate will need to be handed to the respective Secretary of State to assess its authenticity.

Getting your child’s US birth certificate attested involves several steps, including:

  1. Legal translation services in the UAE (if required)
  2. Sending the birth certificate to a Notary Public in the USA
  3. Sending the birth certificate to the local Secretary of State in the USA
  4. Sending the birth certificate to the Department of State in the USA
  5. Submitting the birth certificate to the UAE Embassy in the USA for attestation
