Indian Marriage Certificate Attestation UAE
When you’re looking to become a resident in the UAE, you’ll need to provide attested legal documents. Everything from your educational certificates to your child’s birth certificate will need to be attested to prove its legitimacy. Marriage certificates must also be attested to apply for a family visa or spousal sponsorship.
Applicants will be required to submit documents with their marriage certificate for attestation like passport photos and copies and authorization letters.
To attest an Indian marriage certificate, it will first need to be legalized in India by the respective authorities before you can hand it over to the UAE embassy in New Delhi and UAE’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA).
Why do you need an Attested Marriage Certificate?
The primary purpose of getting your marriage certificate attested is to apply for a family/spousal visa; however, you’ll also need to prove that you’re legally married to your spouse for the following:
- Adding a spouse’s name to your passport
- Adding a spouse to your medical insurance
- To admit your wife to a hospital for childbirth
- To obtain a passport for your child
- To buy property in the UAE with your spouse
- To file for divorce in the UAE
Getting An Indian Marriage Certificate Attested for the UAE
Getting an Indian marriage certificate attested involves several steps. The document will first need to be sent to India, where local authorities will verify its legitimacy and give their stamp of approval.
Once Indian agencies have attested the certificate, it will need to be submitted to the UAE embassy in New Delhi. The certificate will be couriered back to the UAE and submitted to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the final stamp of approval.
The attestation of Indian marriage certificates includes the following steps:
We will send your marriage certificate to India to a notary who will provide a stamp and signature. The approval from the notary guarantees that your certificate is legitimate.
In India, the notary attestation is the first step for attesting all educational degrees and personal documents.
Once the local notary has attested the marriage certificate, it will need to be submitted to the Home Department.
The Sub-Divisional Magistrate may have to attest the certificate in some rare cases.
Ministry of External Affairs
The Ministry of External Affairs provides the final stamp of Indian attestation. Once the ministry attests the certificate, it is considered authentic and can be used abroad.
After the Indian government guarantees the legitimacy of the marriage certificate, we will send it to the UAE embassy in New Delhi before being sent back to the UAE.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs
We will complete the attestation process after the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs attests it.
