How to get your documents attested in Dubai


Get documents attested in Dubai

To get your documents attested in Dubai you have to follow those 3 steps;

First of all you must first visit Dubai Courts Notary Public and then the Ministry of Justice and finally The Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Step One: Dubai Courts Notary Public (DCNP)
Go to Dubai Courts Notary Public with 2 original documents and all original supporting documents including passport/valid ID. At reception, take the token and meet Notary who will verify the document. Take a new token and meet second official who will re-verify your documents and compare your signature. You will be sent to the cash counter to pay AED 110 (100+10 for knowledge fee). Collect documents from second official and return to Notary who will store one original in the archives.

DCNP Branch Locations: Please note that attestations are no longer being done at Dubai Courts. Branches are open at Al Towar Centre in Al Qusais and Al Barsha from 7.30 am to 1 pm and from 4 pm to 8pm. There are also two branches in DED & DM, but they follow regular government office timings.
