When an individual or a family plans to migrate to another country, many red tapes will be involved – the visa application process, booking for accommodations, and knowing the requirements of settling in another country.
Suppose you want to have a residence visa in the UAE. In this case, you need to process the authentication of documents issued from Egypt for them to be accepted abroad when submitting visa and employment applications.
The United Arab Emirates and Egypt are non-members of the Hague Convention – members of the said convention only need Apostille authentication to accept foreign documents for employment, visa, and other processes.
Egypt Certificate Attestation is the process where documents are legalized for local and international use. For instance, job seekers in the United Arab Emirates will need to process the authentication of degree certificates, sometimes with transcripts. Legalizing birth and marriage certificates is a must for families needing residence visas.
Since Egypt issues Arabic documents, a legal translation may be required. A legal translation is a document where a record has been translated to the desired language a country needs. It has the company name of the translation firm and the translator’s name and seal. The document will not be considered a legal translation without the signatures and seal.
This is only applicable for educational documents as a prior verification before the attestation process. This verification is necessary for the document to go through the next step.New Certificates may need to be issued for some documents, depending on the date of issuance of the educational record.
Egyptian Personal Documents do not need to go through this step, as the Ministry of Education is not the concerned department for their verification. Before the attestation process, personal documents must be verified by a Notary in Egypt.
After Egyptian Personal and Educational Documents verification, the next step will be the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Egypt will attest the document.
Once you have the stamps from MOFA Egypt, you can submit your document to any embassy or consulate in the country and be used abroad for any purpose.
For your documents to be accepted in the UAE, you must submit them to the UAE Embassy in Cairo for legalization. This step will be the final attestation process you need to do in Egypt. Without the UAE Embassy seal, you cannot process the certification in the United Arab Emirates.
