UAE Attestation for UK Documents

Legalising documents for the UAE can be time consuming and costly if you do not process the documents correctly. Our UAE attestation service ensures your important documents are successfully legalised in just a few days.

The continued growth within the UAE means that many people are now looking for job opportunities in Dubai and the surrounding cities. Many UK businesses are looking to develop new markets in the UAE or to open UAE branches. This has led to a significant increase in the number of documents being attested in the UK before they will be accepted in the UAE. 

Working in the UAE

When applying for a job in the UAE you will be asked to get your qualifications certified and legalised. This is required for the visa application and the employer sponsoring you will provide advice on which document needs to be attested. You may also need to get a criminal record check attested but this will depend on the job you are applying for.

If you intend to travel to the UAE with a spouse or family members you may also need to get marriage certificates or birth certificates legalised so that they can obtain the correct visa.

Conducting business in the UAE

If your UK business is planning on registering a branch in the UAE, opening a bank account or wants to issue distributor agreements or contracts then you will need to get documents attested. The UAE government will expect all paperwork to be fully certified and legalised by the embassy before it will be accepted.
