Attesting Portuguese Documents for the UAE

Are you from Portugal and need your documents attesting for the UAE? We can help.

Vital Certificates can help you legalise your official Portugal-issued documents for use in the UAE. 

Attesting a Portuguese document is a relatively straightforward procedure, since Portugal is part of the Hague Convention. The most common Portuguese documents requiring legalisation are educational documents, but we can legalise any officially issued Portuguese Certificate if required. The general process for attesting a document from Portugal is below.

How It Works

To attest your Portuguese Documents, we will require both the original certificate and a copy of your passport. 

  • Send us your documents or have them collected by our specially allocated couriers.
  • We'll have them sent safely to Lisbon, Portugal where three things will happen:
  1. Your document will need a certified translation produced so it can be accepted in the UAE.
  2. Then, the document will need to have an Apostille Stamp attached by the relevant government department. 
  3. Thirdly, the document must be sent to the UAE Embassy in Lisbon, where it will be legalised and readied to be sent to the UAE. 
  • Finally, your document will be returned to the UAE and attested at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA), before being sent back to you (or anywhere else you might need), safe and sound. 

Why Vital Certificates?

Vital Certificates can handle the attestation process from end-to-end, regardless of the type of document you're trying to attest, which means you can sit back, relax and let us do the work.
