Attesting your documents for use in the UAE is a systematic process. At Diplomat Translation, we simplify this procedure for you. By partnering with us, you’ll save valuable time and effort, ensuring your UK documents are duly attested and ready for use in the UAE. Here’s a step-by-step breakdown of how it works:

Document Certification

If your document is a copy, we would need to get it certified to confirm its authenticity.


Next, we will obtain an Apostille for your document. This step validates the document’s legitimacy for use in the UAE.

Visit the UAE Embassy in the UK for Attestation

After obtaining the Apostille, we present your document to the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates in the UK for attestation.

Dubai Ministry of Foreign Affairs Attestation

Once the document is attested by the UAE Embassy, it should be sent to the Dubai Ministry of Foreign Affairs for another level of attestation.

Collection and Delivery Options

We can arrange to collect your attested documents from your location. Alternatively, we can facilitate the secure shipment of your documents to Dubai.

UAE attestation & legalisation service provider in the UK

UAE Attestation for UK Documents and Legalisation Services

By partnering with us, you’ll save valuable time and effort, ensuring your UK documents are duly attested and ready for use in the UAE. Our range of UAE attestation and legalisation services includes:

Solicitor Certification

In the case of most documents, the initial procedure involves obtaining certification from a legal professional. Typically, our solicitor will make a certified copy of your document to retain its original condition, and the attestation process will be executed based on this copy. However, if you prefer, you can opt to have the original document processed instead.


Apostille Legalisation

Prior to submission to the UAE Embassy in London, documents must be furnished with an Apostille certificate, a white A5 sheet of paper that serves as confirmation of the authenticity of the seal or signature used to validate the document undergoing the process. In the United Kingdom, this certification can exclusively be administered by the Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office (FCDO).


UAE Embassy Attestation

In the UK, the ultimate stage entails having the document endorsed, commonly referred to as “attested,” by the UAE Embassy in London. In this phase, an official UAE government sticker and seal are affixed to the document. This serves as confirmation to UAE authorities that the document has undergone all the necessary processes in the UK.


MoFA Attestation (UAE)

After the document has arrived in the UAE, it necessitates an additional attestation stamp from the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This stamp confirms that your document has been appropriately processed in the UK. It’s worth noting that some employers may arrange for this process on your behalf, so it’s advisable to check whether you are responsible for completing this step or not.


Translation from English into Arabic

Under specific circumstances, your document might need to be translated into Arabic. It’s important to confirm whether your employer will manage this process for you. If translation is needed, a certified translator will translate the entire document, along with its relevant stamps, from English into Arabic. This finalizes the document, making it fully usable within the UAE.

Various situations may require document attestation, depending on your unique circumstances. Whether you’re relocating for work, sponsoring a family member, or launching a business, Diplomat Translation is here to assist you comprehensively.

Attention notes

What You Need to Know About UAE Attestation & Legalisation in the UK

      • For Diplomat Translation, we handle birth, marriage, or death certificates, as well as certain documents like an ACRO certificate, without requiring the initial certification process because they must be processed on the original document.
      • There is sometimes a misconception that these documents need to be notarized by a Notary Public instead of a solicitor, but this is inaccurate. We opt for solicitors to handle client documents as it is a cost-effective choice for you. If you prefer a notary to perform this task, we can arrange it for an additional fee. It’s important to note that any solicitor or notary used must be registered with the FCDO to avoid delays in processing the Apostille. Rest assured, all our solicitors and notaries are appropriately registered for your convenience.
      • In 2020, the UK legalisation office underwent a name change from the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) to the Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office (FCDO). It had previously been known simply as the Foreign Office.
      • Arabic translation is typically required for documents intended for use in emirates other than Dubai. It’s also necessary if the document will be utilized within one of the Dubai Free Zone authorities, which includes entities like the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC).
      • It’s essential to note that the UAE Embassy in London will reject documents that have been bound behind a Notarial cover sheet.
      • When processing a UK birth certificate, it’s imperative that it’s the long-form (A4) version, which includes parent names. Failure to provide this format will result in rejection.
      • For the attestation of any Power of Attorney (PoA), these documents must be signed in the presence of an FCDO-registered solicitor or notary public to be deemed valid. Witnesses other than an FCDO-registered solicitor or notary public cannot validate a PoA.

FAQs About Attestation & Legalisation of UK Documents for Use in UAE

What is Attestation?

Attestation is the process of authenticating or verifying the legitimacy of official documents for use in foreign countries. It involves obtaining endorsements or stamps from relevant authorities to confirm that the documents are genuine.

What is an Apostille?

An Apostille is a specialized form of attestation used for documents that need to be presented in countries that are part of the Hague Apostille Convention. It simplifies the process by providing a standardized certificate recognized internationally. It confirms the authenticity of the document and the signature of the person who issued it.

Can my documents be attested in the UAE?

If your documents were issued outside of the UAE, they cannot be attested within the country. All foreign documents must undergo an attestation process in their country of origin. So, if you have documents, certificates, or paperwork from another country, they must be sent back to that country for attestation. Once the in-country attestation is complete, the final stage can be handled within the UAE at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA).

Can my documents be attested in the UK?

Yes, documents can be attested in the UK for various purposes, including legal, educational, and business-related matters. The attestation process ensures that your documents are accepted as valid in foreign countries.

Are MoFA Stamps Necessary for All Documents?

Yes, any foreign document presented in the UAE must go through the process of attestation at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) for it to be legally recognized. The UAE has several MoFA locations, and the choice of where you get your document verified does not impact which Emirate will recognize it. For example, if you attest your document in Abu Dhabi while you are in Dubai, it will still be recognized by authorities in Dubai.

Is it necessary to attest my transcripts?

Whether transcripts need attestation depends on the specific requirements of the country or institution where they will be used. Some countries may require the attestation of educational documents like transcripts to verify their authenticity.

Which documents do I need to attest for Visa purposes?

The documents needed for visa purposes can vary by country and type of visa. Commonly attested documents include passports, marriage certificates, birth certificates, educational qualifications (such as degrees and transcripts), and police clearance certificates.

Which documents can be legalized?

A wide range of documents can be legalized or attested, including birth certificates, marriage certificates, academic transcripts, degrees, adoption papers, affidavits, power of attorney documents, and various legal contracts or agreements. The specific documents required for legalization depend on the purpose and destination country.

Can't my Embassy or Consulate do this for me?

While some embassies or consulates can provide attestation services, using a specialized agency like Diplomat Translation offers several advantages. Such agencies have expertise in handling a wide range of documents, can navigate complex international requirements, offer greater convenience, and often provide faster processing times.

Why use Diplomat Translation to attest your documents?

Diplomat Translation is a trusted choice for document attestation due to its experienced team, familiarity with international requirements, and efficient processing. Choosing a specialized agency ensures that your documents meet the necessary criteria and are accepted for use abroad, preventing any potential delays or rejections in foreign countries.
