Attestation Services

Attestation is the process of authenticating certificates and documents for genuineness. In some countries it is also referred to as Authentication and Legalisation.

This is a process of legalisation required by some governments for granting residence permits to start a company or to enrol into an institute as a student for higher education in the UAE.
