MEA attestation is vital for anyone immigrating to UAE, for any purpose, temporary or permanent. MEA document attestation is processed right after the certificate attestation from the respective state HRD(Human Resource Department) and prior to UAE Embassy attestation and MOFA attestation in UAE. MEA attestation can be either processed directly or through attestation services in Dubai. MEA attestation is the verification and authentication of certificates and documents attested by the respective state authorities. 

Documents required for attestation:

  • Orginical certificate for attestation
  • Copy of respective person’s Passport
  • Copy of respective person’s Visa.

Purpose of MEA attestation

UAE is a developed country and migration of Indians to the UAE has increased steeply. Hence, the UAE has set forth some mandatory rules and regulations to make sure that migrants from any country are authenticated and genuine. To use documents issued in India in another country, they must first be attested and authenticated by MEA before being declared as valid by the respective consulate or embassy. MEA attests the document for all countries in accordance with their respective requirements. The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) is India’s highest authority for legalizing Indian documents.

There are certain steps involved prior to and after MEA attestation:

  1. Authentication by the State Education Department, the Home Department, the Sub Divisional Magistrate (SDM), New Delhi, or the Chamber of Commerce (depending on the nature of the document);
  2. Attestation from the Government of India’s Ministry of External Affairs (MEA);
  3. Legalisation obtained from the UAE Embassy in India;
  4. UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) legalisation certification.

Steps involved in the MEA attestation for Indian certificates

The process of attestation of certificates from the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) of the Government of India is applicable to all Indian documents.

The steps are as follows:

Step 1- Verification of Documents

All certificates requiring MEA Attestation must first be verified by the designated authorities of the Indian state/union territory from which the document was issued:

  • Educational certificates – The certificates must first be authenticated by the respective State Education Department or Human Resources Department.
  • Personal certificates – The State Home Department or General Administration Department of the respective State Government/Union Territory must pre-authenticate the certificates.
  • Commercial certificates – The respective Chambers of Commerce should first authenticate the certificates.

Step 2 – Authentication of MEA

 The Certificates are then attested by the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) based on the signatures of the designated authorities of the State Government / Union Territory / Chambers of Commerce.
