Why is Government Document Attestation Important?

Government document attestation is essential for several key reasons:

  • Legal Recognition: Attestation confirms the authenticity of a document, making it legally recognized in foreign countries.

  • Employment: Employers abroad often require attested documents to verify qualifications and personal background.

  • Education: Students going overseas may need to present attested academic documents to enroll in foreign institutions.

  • Business Operations: Attested documents are necessary to comply with international business regulations and establish legal business entities abroad.

  • Residency Applications: Attested personal documents such as birth certificates, marriage certificates, and background checks are often prerequisites for residency or citizenship applications in many countries.

What Documents Require Attestation?

Here are some of the government documents we commonly handle for attestation:

  • Birth and Death Certificates

  • Legal Papers including contracts, agreements, and court documents

The Attestation Process

Our comprehensive attestation process involves several key steps to ensure that your documents are recognized both in the UAE and globally:

Step 1: Document Verification

First, the document is verified by the issuing government authority in the country of origin. This step confirms the document’s legitimacy.

Step 2: Authentication by Relevant Ministries

The document is then authenticated by the relevant Ministry of Foreign Affairs or similar authority in the country of origin, affirming the seal and signature of the issuing authority.

Step 3: Legalization by Embassies

The document is legalized by the embassy or consulate of the destination country located in the document’s country of origin. This step verifies the document for use in the destination country.

Step 4: Final Attestation in the Destination Country

Upon arrival in the destination country, such as the UAE, the document undergoes final attestation by local authorities, such as the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA).
