There are three compulsory parts to getting your document attested from the Saudi Arabia embassy.

Firstly, GulfVisa will stamp your document from a Solicitor (some documents are exempt – see below)

Secondly, we will stamp your document from the British Foreign Ministry (FCO)

Finally, we will stamp your document from the Saudi Embassy in London

The following documents are exempt from solicitor stamping (still need FCO stamping before stamping from Saudi Embassy):

- Original UK Birth Certificate

- Original UK Government Marriage Certificate

- Original UK Police Clearance Certificate (ACRO only)

- Original UK Death Certificate

- Original UK Medical Report signed by a UK Doctor*

* UK doctor must be registered with the British Foreign Office (FCO) Legalisation Department

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

You always need to provide your original certificate. Whether the original document or a copy of it is stamped depends on the following points:

- If your document is not exempt from solicitor stamping, we will make a copy of your document and stamp the copy. This is because the solicitor does not stamp originals. However, the solicitor must still see the original.

- If your document is exempt from solicitor stamping (see list above), your original document will be stamped. This is because the FCO does not allow stamping of copies. Therefore, you must provide the original certificate.

Police Certificates

ACRO Police Certificates are the only police certificates which do not require solicitor stamping. Therefore, you will only have to select the service which includes FCO + Saudi Embassy Legalisation. A non-ACRO police certificate can still be stamped however unlike ACRO it will require legalisation from the solicitor before it can be stamped by the FCO and Saudi embassy.

Therefore, please select the service which includes solicitor, FCO and embassy for non-ACRO police certificates
