Attesting Canadian Documents For UAE
Canada is not a member of the Hague Convention (Apostille countries). Their attestation process is known as Authentication and Legalization.
Before your certificate's Authentication and Legalization, it will go through Notarization – a Notary public signs or stamps a degree to guarantee its authenticity.
The Process of Getting A Canadian Degree Attested
Step 1: Notarization
A lawyer or a notary public will attach a signed notary seal to your degree.
Step 2: Authentication
We will submit your documents to Global Affairs Canada for further authentication. An authentication certificate will be attached to your degree.
Step 3: Legalization
After the authentication for Global Affairs, we will send your degree to the UAE Embassy in Ottawa. They will attach a Legalization certificate on the first page.
Your educational institute must send your sealed transcripts to the UAE Embassy directly – it is a requirement.
Please note that the UAE Embassy will only begin the attestation process once they receive the transcripts. You may need to pay some fees to the embassy for their services. They accept money orders, bank drafts, and certified checks. Payments made will be non-refundable; that is why it's important to submit correct papers on the first go.
This is the last stage of the attestation process in Canada. We will send your degree certificates to UAE.
Step 4: MOFA UAE Attestation
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) in the UAE will issue the final stamp; after this, your Canadian degree is fully-attested and can be used in the UAE for visa purposes.
