Apostille Marriage Certificate UK

What is a UK Apostille?

An apostille is a type of attestation of official documents. It's a certification of authenticity used in member countries of the Hague Convention. An apostille is a way to confirm that the seals and signatures on important documents, such as birth certificates and marriage certificates, are legitimate copies of the original documents. The UK is a member country of the Hague Convention, and the UAE is not. That means your UK Marriage Certificate must be attested through the legal process to be acknowledged and accepted in the UAE. Your document needs to be verified by both the foreign ministry of UAE and the one in the UK for it to have the same legal acceptance. As a result, you'll need to have your marriage certificate "legalized," which serves the same purpose as an Apostille.
