Attesting Portuguese Documents for the UAE

Do you need Portuguese documents attesting for the UAE? You're in the right place.

Vital Certificates can help you attest 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, birth and marriage certificates as well as police clearance 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, drop into our Dubai office 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 Procuradoria-Geral da República in Lisbon. 
  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.

We've helped thousands of clients have their documents attested, and haven't once had a document rejected in the UAE. Using our UAE attestation service gives you complete peace of mind and ensures that you get what you require in a timescale to suit your needs. Our Dubai staff are in constant contact with our colleagues in Portugal, and as such are fully aware of the steps required to make sure your attestation goes smoothly.
