Procedure for Marriage Certificate Attestation for UAE
With over three decades of experience in offering services such as marriage certificate attestation for UAE, our specialists are more than capable of providing you with expert assistance! The steps undertaken by our team of attestation experts to attest or legalize a marriage certificate Dubai and the rest of the UAE are as follows:
1. Verify information on the submitted document
It is important to ensure that the names on the marriage license submitted to our team are the same as the names that are on the passports. If there are slight differences or even the smallest errors, the government of the United Arab Emirates will treat the- document as fake or invalid. This is one of the primary reasons why information verification shouldn’t be skipped when processing marriage certificate attestation in Dubai.
2. Translation of the document
If the document submitted is in another language besides Arabic, the entire document has to be translated by an official translator accredited by local authorities. Our team will make sure as well that the spellings for translated names are the same as what are in the passports of the applicants.
3. Marriage certificate attestation from Ministry of Foreign Affairs of applicants’ home country
The first state department where a marriage certificate has to go through for attestation is the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) of the applicants’ home country. The Ministry from your home country is likely to ask you to submit other details to complete the attestation. They will verify your marriage certificate registration and the authenticity of the entire document.
The requirements for home country MOFA attestation can differ from one country to the next.
4. UAE Embassy marriage certificate attestation (applicants’ home country)
The next step is taking the attested marriage certificate to the UAE embassy in the home country of the attestation applicants. The UAE embassy has a separate charge for attestation.
5. Marriage certificate attestation from Ministry of Foreign Affairs in UAE
Next is the sending of the attested marriage certificate to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in UAE. The UAE MOFA will also check the translation that was made by an approved translator by the Ministry in UAE. Keep in mind it’s illegal to present a fake document to the Ministry for attestation. In other Middle East countries, submitting fake certificates for attestation results in fines and imprisonment.
As soon as the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs stamps and seals the marriage certificate, the document will be regarded throughout the country as valid and legal.
