UAE Document Attestation

Attestation is a form of verification applied to personal and commercial documents when you travel to a country to live or work. Attestation from the UAE’s embassy in the UK confirms that this paperwork is genuine. Without this procedure being completed, your documentation won’t be valid, and you will be unable to complete your plans in the UAE.


The UAE document attestation process can be highly confusing and inconvenient, but we can remove the stress by handling everything on your behalf. Our all-inclusive UAE document attestation service covers all of the necessary steps and can be applied to personal documents like birth and marriage certificates, or commercial documents such as contracts and invoices. GulfVisa also provides certified English to Arabic translation, which means there’s no need to find another company to translate the documents into the correct language.

Our UAE attestation process

Documents that require attestation from the UAE embassy must first be verified by a solicitor and then the British Foreign Office (FCO). Only then can they be passed on to the embassy for final attestation. Our service handles all three stages of document authentication, confirming the validity of all paperwork quickly and easily. Some documentation does not need to be verified by a solicitor, in which case we will organise attestation from both the UAE embassy and the FCO.

Our UAE document embassy attestation service can be offered at a fast rate of between one to two working days, or a normal rate of seven working days. We also offer delivery by courier, as well as an international delivery option for documents that need to be sent abroad. Discounts are available for those who require attestation of three or more documents. Please contact us for more information about our services
