Authenticating documents with the UAE Embassy Australia

Everything you need to know about getting docs authenticated for further study or work in the UAE

Authenticating Australian documents with the UAE Embassy is a necessary step for most people seeking to work or study in the UAE. The process to get your Australian government documents legalised can be arduous and, depending on your other commitments as you plan for your overseas adventure, quite time consuming. Yet legalisation is usually required for anyone looking to undertake further study or work overseas.  

Types of Australian documents requested for use in the UAE

The main types of Australian documents that need authentication before they can be legally accepted in the UAE include:

Educational documents such as degrees, certificates, diplomas, awards, academic transcripts and more.

Public documents such as birth/marriage certificates, National Police Certificate, ASIC, ATO and more.

Corporate documents such as shareholder agreements, partnership agreements and more.

Personal documents such as wills, power of attorney, statutory declaration and more.

The authentication process specific to the UAE

The document attestation in UAE process requires the document to undergo a strict legal process:

1. Notarisation
This is the process of having a lawyer or notary public notarise the document via an attached notary seal. Authentifier has in-house lawyers that can handle this for you.

2. Authentication
Once the document has been notarised, it then needs to be sent to The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) so that is can be authenticated via a certificate of Authentication. We will manage this step for you as well.

3. Attestation
Now that your document has been notarised and authenticated, it requires attestation which can only be done at the UAE Embassy. Authentifier will also handle this part of the process.

Authenticating Australian documents with the UAE Embassy can’t be completed online and requires you to make a visit to the UAE Embassy in Australia. But what if you’re interstate, overseas or unable to make it in person? That’s where we come in.
