US Certificate Attestation
The UAE requires all foreign nationals to present attested documents to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the UAE.
Although it is possible to go through the attestation process yourself, it becomes easier to let attestation services companies take the wheel. Like certificate attestation for other countries, US certificate attestation also involves multiple steps, including translation, notarization, authentication, and legalization.
The team at Benchmark Attestation Services is meticulous; our detail-oriented approach guarantees that your documents are accepted immediately after attestation.
In our many years in business, we’ve never had a rejection. Our 100% approval rate proves that we’re excellent at our job.
US Certificates That Need to be Attested
The following US certificates will need to be attested to obtain a residential visa in the US:
- Personal documents (marriage certificates and children’s birth certificates).
- University degree certificates
- Specialization certificates (Institute of Chartered Accounts, Financial Accounting Board, Teaching License)
- Training certificates
- Commercial documents
Original certificates will have to be submitted, and a copy of the passport.
How Long Does it Take?
The attestation process takes a few weeks to complete; however, we can fast-track it if you need the certificates urgently. Please note that fast-tracking the attestation process comes with an additional fee.
The Process of US Attestation
