In the UAE the authorities to certify legal translations are the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA).
If the documents issued outside the UAE document must be attested by the UAE embassy in the country of origin. Then once it reaches in the UAE, then it should be attested by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA). After the completion of these steps, we can have the document translated by one of our certified legal translators. Then we affix our legal stamp and legal signature certifying the accuracy of the translation and then take the translated document to the Ministry of Justice of the UAE to for the attestation.
If the documents issued in the UAE and destined for foreign countries, before the translation, any legal document must be signed and stamped by the relevant UAE institution, organization or private individual who issued the document as well as by the competent legalization authority (e.g. the Notary Public or the Economic Department). Subsequently, the document must be attested by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) and eventually by the consulate or embassy of the country where the document will be used. After the completion of these steps, we can have the document translated by one of our certified translators and we can affix our legal stamp and signature on the translation.
When you need a legal translation, always check and verify which attestation is required by the company, organization or government department to whom the document is to be submitted. In case of any doubt or question please do not hesitate to contact us
