mofa Atttestation sharjah


A country has multiple government departments. One of them is the Ministry of Foreign Affairs – responsible for building and maintaining relationships with several countries worldwide. It is also responsible for planning and implementing foreign policies.

The verification of documents and certificates that the other government offices have attested is also one of the duties of the ministry. Once the verification is done, MOFA forwards the attested and verified papers to the embassy of the country requiring the attested certificates.

For foreign certificates, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the country that issued the certificate will attest the certificate before being finally stamped by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the country that requested the attested certificates.
