If you're planning to get your visa or incorporate a company here in the UAE, you might need to have certain documents attested.
Most of our documents, like education degree certificates, birth or marriage certificates, and incorporation certificates for foreign companies, might not be from the UAE. Don't worry though, these documents just need to be validated through attestation.
First, they'll need to be attested by the external or foreign ministry of the country of origin. Then, the UAE embassy in the country of origin will take care of the second attestation. Finally, the documents will be attested by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the UAE.
