Documents Certification

As the US legalization is totally dedicated to make certification easy, we have established this specialized website for issuing the UAE “United Arab Emirates” authentication and legalization of your single or multiple documents In this website you will find several services, news, tips, embassy notes and free resources (in which you can easily find and download to help you on both personal and business level).

Apostille procedure

The apostille - a special kind of letter and stamp - is the shortest process of legalization. An apostille is not the same as a 'raised seal', these are two separate things.
An apostille can be used if both countries (the country issuing the document and the country in which the document will be used) are part of the international "The Hague Apostille Convention ".

The United States is a party to the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents. The Convention abolishes the requirement of diplomatic and consular legalization for public documents originating in one Convention country and intended for use in another. For the purposes of the Convention, public documents include:
(a) documents emanating from a court.
(b) documents issued by an administrative authority (such as civil records).
(c) documents executed before a notary. Such documents issued in a Convention country which have been certified by a Convention certificate called an "apostille" are entitled to recognition in any other Convention country without any further authentication.
