Procedure for UK Degree Attestation from UAE Embassy

Here is the detailed process that you should know:

Step # 1 Obtaining Certified True Copy by the Solicitor

Getting a document certified as a true copy is essential to eliminate the chances of the document being dismissed as a fake certificate. This is done by a legally authorized person known as the solicitor who puts their signature and their official seal.
Step # 2 Receiving Apostille stamp from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO)

Step # 2 Receiving Apostille stamp from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO)

An Apostille Certificate is a legally recognized certificate issued by the respective state. It authenticates the credibility of the signatures and seals on the presented document. If a degree certificate carries the Apostille stamp, the authority receiving it accepts it without further evidence. It clarifies things like who has signed the document, country of issue, issuing authority, and apostille serial number.

Step # 3 UAE Embassy Legalisation from London, UK

The certificate is forwarded to embassy legalization in the UK in the next step. We ensure that your UK degree certificate is properly legalized for use in the UAE. Our good network with the Foreign & Commonwealth Office UK ensures your certificate is legalized fast.

Step # 4 Attestation from Ministry of Foreign Affairs Dubai, UAE

Once the UAE embassy in London legalizes your degree certificate, it will have to be attested by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, UAE, which will be the last step.
