The Legalization Process
In the UAE legalized or attested/certified translations are commonly referred to as “Legal translations”. Another common expression used in in the UAE is “Legal Translator” and “Legal stamp”. These simply correspond to the Western notion of “Certified/Sworn translators/translations”. The competent bodies to certify translations are the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) and Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA).
There are two possible scenarios for legal translations.
Documents issued abroad and destined to Dubai, Abu Dhabi or other Emirates.
Before translation, an official document required for translation must be attested by the UAE Embassy in the country of origin (e.g. UAE Embassy in Rome, for documents issued in Italy). Once the documents arrives in the UAE it must be attested by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) in the United Arab Emirates. After these two steps the document is ready to be translated and stamped by a certified Ministry of Justice translator. Please note that for certain documents National Consulates and Embassies can also attest the original documents before MOFA.
Documents issued in Dubai, Abu Dhabi or other Emirates and destined to another country
Before translation, any official document to be used abroad must be signed and stamped by the UAE local institution, organization or individual issuing the document and by the relevant legalization authority (e.g. the Notary Public or the Economic Department). Subsequently, the document must be attested by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) and finally by the Consulate or Embassy of the country where the document will be used.
