Italy Certificate Attestation

Being a center for business and trade in the Middle East, the UAE attracts thousands of expats worldwide to migrate for professional purposes. Such an open immigration system demands that a degree of stringency is exercised when it comes to regulation via when it comes to paperwork and documentation.

All formal paperwork and documentation, including educational certificates needed for use within the United Arab Emirates, must be accredited or authenticated (formally recognized) and cross-referenced before use.

Lacking authentication may result in problems seeking employment, objections from schools and educational institutions, and trouble with surety when renting real estate for lodging purposes.

Without the required authenticated documentation, it can be tough, if not next to impossible, to get around within the UAE, so attestation of all your certificates and documents is highly recommended.

Apostille in Italy

An apostille is a legalization certificate that verifies the authenticity of a certificate for use in a foreign country. Italy is a Hague Convention (Apostille countries) member, which recognizes and accepts foreign documents with just an Apostille stamp.

To explain further – suppose you are a US citizen with a US Birth Certificate to be used in Italy. If you have an apostille authentication on your US-issued birth certificate, the Italian government will accept your Apostilled birth certificate for any process.

However, for foreign nationals with Italian documents to be used in the United Arab Emirates, Italy Apostille legalization is not enough. We need to process the attestation of Italian documents in the UAE Embassy.
