The procedures involved in their attestations also differ. We will provide you with a detailed breakdown of the requirements and prerequisites involved in getting the documents (as listed above) attested for UAE.


You will first have to get your document authenticated from the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT), which will attach a certificate of authentication to your document.


Next, you will have to send your documents to the UAE Embassy located in Ottawa. They will attach a certificate of legalization to your document upon approval.


The final step for document attestation is authentication of the document from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in UAE.

The complete procedure for document attestation is tedious and time-consuming. However, for now, we are focusing on the details of the second step, i.e., document attestation from the UAE Embassy in Ottawa.

Before submission of your documents to the UAE Embassy in Ottawa, make sure of the following:

  • The DFAIT has authenticated your document or certificate
  • All your documents (educational, legal, and otherwise) are notarized by a Notary Public, Commissioner of Oath, or lawyer
  • Your document should be accompanied by a prepaid return envelope of Canada Post (express post envelope)
  • You have filled the legalization form (for all documents, such as educational, business, birth & marriage certificates, etc.) and attached it with your documents.

When submitting or sending your documents to the UAE Embassy in Ottawa for attestation, take a note of the following:

  • The UAE Embassy in Ottawa only accepts bank drafts, certified cheques, or money orders originated in Canada and does not accept any forms of payment that originate outside of Canada
  • You should submit COMPLETE documents for attestation because the UAE Embassy in Ottawa only retains documents for two months and then disposes of them safely and confidentially. If you provide a return envelope, they will return your documents to you
  • If you are sending your documents through courier, ensure that you attach the computer-generated waybill along with your documents.

  • Submit your documents between 9:30 a.m. and 12:00 p.m
