What's the Attestation Process?

A view in to how we handle things for you


Notaries are internationally recognised, independent and regulated lawyers who verify facts and documents for use overseas.   

The Notary will take a copy of your original document, put their certification that it is a true copy, sign it and seal it.


After the Notary has signed and sealed the documents,   we send one of our team to the United Kingdom Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) for them to apply an Apostille.

An Apostille is the UK Government verifying that we are UK Notaries and that UK Notaries have authority to authenticate degrees.

UAE Consulate

We then complete the process by taking the documents to the UAE Embassy in London.  

The UAE Embassy verify the authenticity of the UK Apostille.

We collect the authenticated documents with the UAE Embassy stamp and return everything to you enabling you to get on with your UAE Visa application.

PLEASE NOTE: January 2024Update - The timeframe for this service is now 3-4 weeks.

This is because the Consulate have been taking an average of 3 weeks to process degree attestations. This is immensely frustrating for both our clients and ourselves and as soon as the timeframe improves we shall update it on here. 

We are unable to provide updates during this process so please do not contact us to ask. If there are any issues with your documents, we will get in touch with you as soon as possible.

Please keep an eye on this site for when we remove these restrictions.

Please note that due to the value of the documents we only use secure delivery services that are fully trackable, hence the delivery costs.
