Certificate Attestation

Certificate Attestation

Certificate Attestation is the process of verifying and validating the authenticity of educational, personal and commercial documents issued in one country for use in another country. There are four kinds of Attestation which is going to be done on your documents.

  • HRD/Home Department Attestation
  • Notary Attestation
  • Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) Attestation
  • Embassy Attestation
In some cases depending on the Embassy it will be required to Attest the document from state level first, for example if the document is issued from Kerala then it has to be Attested from Kerala first.

What does Certificate Attestation Mean?

Legalization (Or Attestation as it is commonly known) is the process of authenticating a document to the required level so that another country will be happy to accept that it is genuine.
For example…

  • You are relocating from the INDIA to the UAE(Dubai) and your new employer needs you to attest your educational qualifications.
  • Your new employer in Dubai, understandably, is unlikely to be in a position to recognize whether an Indian Degree Certificate is genuine or not. So they ask you to get the degree qualification attested. This means that they need the UAE Embassy within the India (the country of issue) to attest that the qualification is genuine.
  • However, different documents have different legalization requirements. In this case, the Embassies will not verify the authenticity of a degree qualification directly. Before the degree certificate can be attested, it first has to be countersigned by the concerned departments.

To wrap up, here are some key points on Certificate Attestation
