Regardless if you need help with the entire process or have already completed some of the legalisation processes, we can help.

We liaise with the UAE Embassy in London nearly every day. We are very familiar with their requirements and know what it takes to get your documents attested so they don’t get rejected.

The two most popular services that we provide are:

  • Apostille & UAE embassy attestation 
  • Apostille, solicitor certification & UAE embassy attestation

We also get enquires for UAE attestation service only, which we, of course, provide too. It just means that the document that needs to be attested has the apostille certificate already attached.

Embassy attestation enquiry

The UAE embassy legalisation process requires that certain documents are first certified or notarised, then legalised by the FCDO, and then attested by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) embassy in London.

Non-UK documents must be attested by the issuing country first. Exceptions apply; please enquire.

Apostilled documents bundled together are not accepted.

Invoices must be processed separately and certified by the Arab British Chambers of Commerce (ABCC) [1].

The UAE embassy does not offer an expedited service [2].

UAE attestation requirements

  • UK documents must be apostilled by the FCDO
  • Personal documents must be originals (not copies*)

  • Certified copies of educational certificates are accepted

  • Documents must be submitted by post/courier
  • No submission in person accepted at the embassy
  • Submissions must contain the correct cover letter
  • Submissions must include prepaid return envelope
  • Police clearance certificate (PCC) must be originals
  • UAE does not accept educational documents with a notary cover sheet

Standard processing is five working days from when the embassy receives the documents. It may take longer if extra checks have to be carried out.
