Canada Degree Attestation
People who obtained degrees from Canadian institutions have to get their certificates attested before applying for an employment or student visa in the UAE.
The UAE has strict attestation requirements for foreign nationals looking to work or pursue higher education in the country. By getting Canadian degrees attested, foreign nationals can prove that their certificates are legitimate and have the necessary qualifications.
Because the attestation process requires multiple steps, we recommend hiring an attestation services provider like Benchmark Attestation Services. We’ve never experienced a rejected application in our many years of service.
Our team is meticulous; we pay attention to minor details, so you don’t have to. You can rest assured that your Canadian degree attestation will be completed correctly and on time when you hire us.
Attesting Canadian Documents for UAE
Since Canada doesn’t issue an Apostille, its attestation process is slightly different from other countries. The attestation process is known as Authentication and Legalization.
Before submitting certificates for Authentication and Legalization, they would need to go through Notarization. This is when a Notary Public attaches a signed notary seal to the degree that guarantees its authenticity.
The Process of Getting A Canadian Degree Attested
Step 1: Notarization
Your degree will need to be notarized by a Notary Public or a lawyer who will attach a signed notary seal to your degree.
Step 2: Authentication
After your documents have been notarized, we will submit them to Global Affairs Canada for authentication. They will attach a Certificate of Authentication to your degree.
Step 3: Legalization
Once the authentication is complete, we will send your degree to the UAE Embassy in Ottawa; the embassy will attach a Legalization Certificate on the first page.
The UAE Embassy will require your educational institute to send the transcripts directly; the transcripts will need to be sent in a sealed envelope.
Note that the UAE embassy will not begin the attestation process until it receives the transcripts. You will need to pay a fee to the embassy for its services. Payments will need to be made through certified checks, money orders, or bank drafts issued in Canada. The payment is non-refundable, which is why it’s so important to get the paperwork right on the first go.
This is the last stage of the attestation process in Canada; we will send your degree back to the UAE.
Step 4: MOFA Attestation
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) in the UAE will give you the final stamp of approval; after this stage, your Canadian degree is fully attested and can be used to obtain a residential visa in the UAE.
