In order to process documents for this country, your documents require State, U.S. Department of State, and the UAE Embassy legalization.   Documents issued by the U.S. Federal Government do not require State certification.

The country of the United Arab Emirates has one Embassy office in Washington, D.C. and one Consulate office in Los Angeles, CA.  All documents received for this country will be legalized through the UAE Embassy in Washington, D.C.

For example, if you need your California marriage certificate to be certified and legalized for the UAE Embassy, your document will require California State certification, US Department of State certification, and UAE Embassy legalization.  These three steps are required in order for the Government of the UAE to accept your documents.

The most common documents we certify and legalize for United Arab Emirates are:

Diplomas
Transcripts
Commercial Invoices
Certificate of Origin
Power of Attorney
Authorization of Agent
Marriage License
FBI Background Check
and more!

Please note: The Embassy charges substantially more to legalize business documents. Please, call us for a good faith estimate in cost and processing time.

On average, we can complete your documents in 2-3 weeks.  Our staff is available Monday – Saturday from 8am to 7pm to answer your question and provide you step-by-step instructions.  Call us at 1-888-810-4054.

UAE Document Legalization – Dubai

Do you need your documents legalized for the UAE?  If you plan to work, handle personal affairs (Power of Attorney), or conduct business in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), you will be required to have your documents legalized by the UAE Embassy in Washington, D.C.

Legalizing your documents for the UAE is a multi-step process involving the Secretary of State, U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C., and the UAE Embassy in Washington, D.C.  If your documents require notarization (Example: Power of Attorney, Company Documents, Affidavit, Travel Consent, Diplomas, Transcripts, etc…), you will need to meet with a local notary near you before your documents can be certified by the Secretary of State.

Document issued by the County or State do not require notarization.  These documents include: Birth Certificates, Marriage Certificates, Death Certificates, Divorce Decree (Superior Court), etc..

As of this article, most corporate documents cost $600 to legalize and personal documents (Example: Power of Attorney, Diploma, Marital Status, Birth Certificates, Certificate of Good Conduct, etc…) costs $45.  The UAE Embassy will make the final determination on the cost of your documents.  In some situations, personal documents can be viewed as conducting business and will be assessed the $600 fee.

Legalizing educational documents for the UAE has strict requirements.  The educational institution must be located in the US and regionally accredited by NEASC (CIHE), MSA (CHE), NCA (HLC), SACS (COC), NWCCU, or WASC (ACCJC-ACSCU). To show proof of regional accreditation, please visit the CHEA Database of Institutions and Programs (link is external) and print your institution’s accreditation information.

The typically processing time with the UAE Embassy in currently 4 to 5 business days.  This is in additional to the time it will take to certify your documents from the State and the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C.  We typically estimate three weeks to complete your documents.  You do not need to be in the United States for us to certify and legalize your documents.  You can mail-in your documents to our office for processing.  We also provide international shipping to the UAE.

Attesting documents on your own can take months.   This 3-4 step process involves certifying your documents with the State, U.S. Department of State, and the UAE Embassy.  We can handle the entire process or a portion of the legalization.  For example, if you have already certified your documents with the State, you can mail-in your documents to our Washington DC Apostille office for the certification with the U.S. Department of State and the Embassy.  Some of our clients have asked us to handle the Department of State only.  We are more than happy to assist you in any way we can.
