Attesting Russian Documents For The UAE

The attestation of Russian Documents can be quite a complicated process and varies depending on the type of document you wish to attest. The general process for all documents is detailed below.

How It Works

  • Send us your documents or have them collected by our specially allocated couriers.
  • We'll have them sent safely to Moscow, Russia, where four things will happen:
  1. The document will be sent to the Ministry of Justice where a  stamp of authentication will be applied.
  2. Then, your document will be sent to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, where another stamp will be applied.
  3. Thirdly, your document will be sent to the UAE Embassy in Moscow, where a Certificate of Legalisation will be added to the front page.
  4. Fourth, your document will be translated from Russian into Arabic, and subsequently notarised for acceptance in 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.

This process is the same across the board, though there can be some differences depending on the type of document you're trying to attest. For example, in the case of a Degree Diploma, it is often necessary to send the original copy of the completed degree to us before it can be attested. If it isn't possible for you to get the original copy though, it isn't a problem.  We can help you legalise the copy of the Diploma, though there will be an extra charge. 

In terms of the translation, costs will vary depending on the number of characters needing to be translated on your document. Please contact us for more information.

Client Feedback

"This morning I received my attested documents back from you. They arrived by courier.

Firstly, I was very cautious about sending both my Russian wedding certificate and son's Kazakh birth certificate to you for UAE attestation services. The absolute difficulties and expense that could occur from trying to obtain replacement certificates should they have been lost is just simply incalculable. Anybody who has lived within these former CIS states will absolutely understand the challenges faced by anyone trying to obtain copies of original certification, let alone someone living outside these nation states. My fears were unfounded. You delivered prompt, efficient service and from start to finish the process took 29 days. This includes the courier time from when I sent the documents to your office in UAE from Thailand to me receiving the attested documents back in my hands.

Thank you again for your prompt, efficient service."
