UAE New Requirements for Legalisation of Educational Certificates

The Cultural Department of the UAE Embassy changed the requirements for legalisation of educational certificates with immediate effect.

The consular section confirmed that notaries and solicitors must certify directly on the actual document so the FCO can attach the Apostille to it instead of to the notarial certificate.

Documents which have not been certified accordingly will be rejected by the Consulate.

Please contact our legalisation team by email at INFO@WLEGALISATION.CO.UK for further information.
