How does it work?

Attesting Attesting Russian documents to be used in the UAE can be a highly complex matter. Depending upon the type of document, as well as which authority it needs to be presented to, there are multiple requirements that are needed which change from document to documents. The following sections lay out a general example of the processes that may be needed. However, you are advised to contact us to confirm the specific requirements needed for your own situation.

Legal Translation

Translation from Russian to English

As the UAE Embassy in Russia only accepts documents written in either English or Arabic, all documents written solely in Russian will first require translation. Once completed, the translator or translation company will then swear an affidavit to confirm that the translation is accurate. Translation is not required in the case of a dual-language Russian/English document.

Notarial Certification

Certification by Russian Notary

Once the translation has been completed, it is then presented to a Notary Public in Russia for their notarial stamp. During this process, the notary will certify that the translation company has attested to the accuracy of the translation and stamp it accordingly.

Ministry of Justice in Russia

Pre-Legalisation

Once a document has been notarised, it can then be presented to the Russian Ministry of Justice for certification. During this process, the officials will certify that the Notary Public is recognised by their office and stamp the translation accordingly.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Russia

Russian Legalisation

Once a document has been notarised, it can then be presented to the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs for legalisation. During this process, the officials will certify that the Ministry of Justice has correctly certified the translation and add their stamp to it.

UAE Embassy in Russia

UAE Embassy Attestation

The final step in Russia is to have the document stamped, known as attested, by the UAE Embassy in Moscow. During this stage an official UAE-government sticker and seal is applied to the document. This confirms to the authorities in the UAE that the document has completed all the required steps in Russia.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs (UAE)

MoFA Attestation (UAE)

Once the document has reached the UAE, it requires a further attestation stamp by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the UAE which validates that your document has been processed correctly in Russia. Some employers make arrangements to handle this for you, so you should check whether this needs to be completed by you or not. If you prefer to handle this process yourself, we can arrange for the required PCR test to be carried out before you attend. If your document does not require a final Arabic translation (see the next section), then once this stamp has been applied you can then use the document in the UAE.

Translation

Translation from English into Arabic

In certain circumstances, your document may also require translation into Arabic. Again, your employer may handle this for you so best to check. If required, the whole document and its relevant stamps are translated from English into Arabic by a recognised certified translator. Once the translation has been done, then everything has been completed to make it fully useable within the UAE.

Attestation Notes

  • For Russian degree certificates, an archival certificate/letter from the school/university is always required for the process. In some cases, we can arrange this for you however, on occasions you may be required to obtain this yourself depending upon the policy of the school or university.
  • Arabic translation is usually required for use in all emirates other than Dubai, and also if the document is to be used within one of the Dubai Free Zone authorities including (but not limited to) the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC).
