Kuwait Attestation Services for Personal Documents

To be able to live and work in Kuwait, the country’s embassy in the UK will need to have attested certain personal paperwork and certificates. This verifies these documents so that they will be accepted by Kuwait officials. However, this undertaking can often be complex and confusing, as well as costly if not done right.

As such, our personal certificate attestation service for Kuwait is designed to be incredibly useful, providing authenticating for documents like passports, driving licences and health certificates, all on our clients’ behalf.

We also offer an international delivery service via DHL to our customers outside of the UK.

GulfVisa's certificate attestation for Kuwait process

Our all-in-one solution attests your documents swiftly and simply. The three stages, in order, are:

  1. Your documents are stamped by a solicitor
  2. The papers are then verified by the British Foreign Office (FCO)
  3. Finally, your certificates are attested by the Kuwaiti embassy in London

The following documents do not need to be verified by a solicitor, and only require attestation by the FCO & the Kuwait embassy:

  • Original Birth Certificate
  • Original Marriage Certificate
  • Original Death Certificate
  • Original ACRO Police Clearance Certificate
  • Original Medical report signed by a British doctor registered with the FCO Legislation Department

Do I need to send the original document or a copy?

While a solicitor typically only stamps a copy of the document, they must still see the original, so you will need to provide this too. The sole original documents attested by solicitors are non-ACRO police certificates.

Should your paperwork be exempt from solicitor stamping, the FCO does not accept copies, and as such, they will still stamp the original.

Non-ACRO Police Certificates

Non-ACRO police certificates will need attestation from a solicitor before being stamped by the FCO and the Kuwait embassy. Please select the ‘Solicitor + FCO + Kuwait Embassy Attestation’ option for these documents

Who requires certificate attestation for Kuwait?

Anybody wanting to live or work in Kuwait will need to show attested documents. For instance, you may not be allowed into the country without an authenticated passport, while you could be unable to work there without an attested degree certificate.

Can my documents be rejected?

No, it is extremely rare. However, please ensure your documents are issued from the UK. We will check if your documents are acceptable for Kuwait embassy document legalisation. However, the ultimate decision is always down to the embassy. If there are any doubts, we will contact you or/and show the embassy before submission to confirm
