MINISTRY OF EDUCATION

Attestation of educational certificates is a mandatory procedure when applying for a UAE visa. Foreign nationals unfamiliar with the full process may find it complicated and time-consuming. If you want to get it done without putting much effort into it, you can hire Stanford Global Attestation Services. Our team is well-trained in the entire process of documents legalization.

We will collect your documents and complete all the required stamps by UAE Law. Our degree attestation process for UAE is efficient.

The degree attestation process involves five steps:

  • Notary Public Stamp on the Certificate (if required) optional for some countries
  • Verification from State Education Department or Relevant Authority
  • Authentication from Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Country of Issue
  • UAE Embassy Legalization in the Country of Issue
  • Attestation from Ministry of Foreign Affairs Dubai, UAE.

After the attestation is done, you can already apply for UAE visas.

Some companies or government offices in the UAE require a Certificate of Equivalency before processing a foreign national’s visa. This is where the Ministry of Education comes in.

The Ministry of Education is a government entity in the UAE which maintains education standards with best global practices. The ministry supports UAE’s goal to promote innovation and creativity within students to keep pace with the development of the globe. 

Applying for an equivalency certificate is important to ensure that the Ministry of Education in the UAE endorses your qualification and verifies that the government accredits your institution or university.

The ministry will not provide an equivalency certificate without attestation on your documents or papers. Failing to submit it will delay expatriates from continuing their education or applying for a UAE job. This process is important for foreign nationals who have graduated outside the UAE.
