Procedure for Legalizing Degree Certificates in UAE

Here is the detailed process for degree certificate attestation in Dubai:

Step #1 Notary Public Stamp on the Certificate

A notary public is a legally authorized person who processes document notarization. They check your identification and then put their signature and stamp with an official seal. This way, your ID and certificates are verified.


Step # 2 Verification from the Ministry of Education or Relevant Authority

Degree certificates must be pre-authenticated from the Ministry of Human Resource & Development, India [MHRD]. Then it’s attested by the respective state departments depending on the document type. For example, in the case of certifying degree certificates for the UAE in Kerala, verification is done by the concerned state education department.


Step # 3 Legalization from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the Country of Issue

Once the certificate is verified by the concerned authority that we discussed about in step #2, it is forwarded to the Ministry of External Affairs in India for further authentication.


Step # 4 UAE Embassy Attestation in the Country of Issue

Your degree certificate needs authentication from the UAE Embassy in India. For that, your documents are first attested at two levels — first, by the Consular of the Ministry of External Affairs of India and second, by the Consular Section in Vasant Kunj, New Delhi.


The timings are 9:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M from Monday to Thursday and 9:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. on Friday.


Step # 5 MOFA UAE Attestation

The document is forwarded to MOFA Dubai for the last step. The UAE government accepts the paper for processing only after your document carries a stamp from UAE MOFA Attestation Dubai.
