Attestation of Chinese Documents for UAE

Documents issued from China must be legalized before you use them for a UAE visa. Chinese degree certificates, birth certificates and marriage certificates issued from China, and Chinese commercial documents must have UAE embassy attestation from Beijing before the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs accepts the documents for final attestation.

Here are the procedures you need to follow for Chinese Document Attestation in Dubai

1. Notarization: Ensure you have the original Chinese document that must be legalized. Get the document notarized by a notary public in China or any other authorized person. The notary public will verify the document's authenticity and attach their seal or stamp.
Chinese residential card, national ID, passport copy, and transcript may be required as supporting documents.

2. Authentication: Submit the notarized document to the relevant Chinese authorities for authentication. The specific department responsible for authentication may vary depending on the document type. For example, Chinese educational documents are usually authenticated by the Chinese Ministry of Education, while commercial documents must be certified by the Chamber of Commerce in China.

3. Ministry of Foreign Affairs Attestation: Once the relevant Chinese authorities authenticate the document, you must submit it to MOFA China for attestation. The Chinese MOFA will verify the authentication and apply their attestation stamp. Before submitting your documents to any Embassy or Consulate in China, this process is required.

4. UAE Embassy Attestation: After obtaining MOFA's attestation, submit the document to the UAE Embassy in Beijing, China. The embassy will verify the MOFA's attestation and proceed with its attestation process. They will apply their official stamp or seal to the document, confirming its authenticity. This is the final step you need to do inside China.
Since certificates issued in China are in Mandarin/Chinese/Cantonese, a certified translation into English will be required. The UAE Embassy in China will only accept a document with an English translation.

5. UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs Attestation: After obtaining the attestation from the UAE Embassy in China, you must have the document further attested by the MOFA Dubai. This step ensures that the UAE government recognizes the document.
