According to the UAE Federal Labor Law, people/ individuals applying for a resident permit in UAE, or an employment or residence visas for family members or to pursue higher education or starting a business or company or to write various examinations etc. need to provide attested certificate from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the home country and Ministry of Foreign Affairs of UAE. Those moving out of the UAE also need to get MOFA Attestation in UAE first. According to the law, the people or individuals must first go to Dubai Courts or Notary Public and get their certificates attested, followed by Ministry of Justice and then finally by the MOFA- Ministry of Foreign Affairs, UAE. The next procedures will be followed in the country where the individual is aiming to go.
