The Legalization Process
Legal translations, also referred to as certified or sworn translations, are certified in the UAE by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) and Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA).
There are two main possible scenarios for legal translations in the UAE:
1 – Documents issued abroad and destined to Dubai, Abu Dhabi, or other Emirates.
Before the translation, the document needs to be attested by the UAE Embassy in the country of origin – for example, the UAE Embassy in Rome for documents issued in Italy. In certain cases, National Consulates and Embassies can also attest the original documents.
Once the documents arrives in the UAE, it needs to be attested by the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA).
After these two steps, the document is ready to be translated and stamped by a certified Ministry of Justice translator.
2 – Documents issued in Dubai, Abu Dhabi or other Emirates and destined to another country
Before the translation, the document is be signed and stamped by:
- The UAE organization or individual issuing it;
- The relevant UAE legalization authority – for example, the Notary Public or the Economic Department.
Subsequently, the document is attested by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA).
Finally, the document is be attested by the Consulate or Embassy of the country of destination.
We recommend our clients to check the most updated requirements from the organisation or institution to whom they are submitting the document, as there are some different certification processes accepted in the UAE.
