Degree Certificate Attestation Procedure in UAE

The United Arab Emirates isn’t one of the signatories of the Hague Convention; therefore, attestation for degree certificates and other similar documents is a requirement. Certificates that are attested are considered valid for recognition by UAE authorities. The document attestation procedure typically comprises of different stages, starting where the document was issued. The stages are as follows:

Stage 1: The certificate is notarized in country of origin.

The first stage of the attestation is notarization. A notary public will attest to the certificate’s authenticity as well as the signatures therein. This is necessary for authentication or legalization for use in UAE.

Stage 2: The document is attested in country of origin.

The attestation of the document will be done by the department of foreign affairs where the certificate was issued. The department will attest the certificate by cross-examining information of the notary. As soon as the department is satisfied with their verification process, the document will be stamped.

Stage 3: The UAE embassy provides its certification.

The attested certificate will then be forwarded to the consulate of UAE in the issuing country for certification. If it was attested accordingly prior to submission to the UAE embassy, the office of the UAE consulate will provide a UAE Consulate stamp. Following the stamping, the certificate will be brought to UAE where it will have to go through the next step of the attestation process.

Stage 4: MOFA in UAE certifies the validity of the document.

As soon as the document arrives to the UAE, it’s then presented to UAE MOFA for certification. Upon submission, it is checked by UAE authorities to make sure it has gone through the necessary phases and has been approved by the UAE embassy or consulate in the document’s issuing country. The ministry will then provide its certification and provide legal effect to the document.

Stage 5: The document is translated.

If the degree certificate will be submitted to a government agency, it requires Arabic translation by certified legal translators (with licenses provided by the Ministry of Justice).

Once Arabized, the original certificate together with the translation will be presented to the Ministry of Justice for them to provide certification. Remember that translation is not a requirement of free zone authorities.
