Everything you need to know about document attestation for Qatar
If you need Australian documents for work or study in Qatar, your notarised documents will need to be attested by DFAT and then authenticated with the Qatar Embassy. But what if you’re interstate, overseas or need help understanding this lengthy process? That’s where we come in. Authentifier handles the entire process from start to finish to get attestation of documents with the Qatar Embassy ready for recognition by your employer or educational institution in Qatar.
Types of Australian documents requested for use in Qatar
The main types of Australian documents that need attestation before they can be legally accepted in Qatar include:
Educational documents such as degrees, certificates, diplomas, awards, academic transcripts and more.

Corporate documents such as shareholder agreements, partnership agreements and more.
Personal documents such as wills, power of attorney, statutory declaration and more.
How document attestation in Qatar works
The attestation process for Australian documents being used in Qatar requires the document to undergo a strict legal process:
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.
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.
Now that your document has been notarised and authenticated, it requires legalisation which can only be done at the Qatar Embassy in Canberra. Authentifier will also handle this part of the process.
