Step by Step Legalization Process:

  1. Notarization – First step is to get your POA notarized at a notary public office or by a solicitor in the UK. For our client’s convenience, we have an affiliate notary office in the UK located in London who can accommodate you for the notarization. If you are located in other parts of the United Kingdom so if you’re not near our affiliate notary office, you may still have your POA notarized in any part of the UK after which you may courier the notarized POA to our London office where we can proceed to Step 2.
  2. Apostille by Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) – This is the part of the legalization process where it confirms the signature of the UK official who conducted the certification. It confirms the authenticity of the signature, seal, or stamp on the attached UK public document. Authentication Certificate will be attached.
  3. Legalization by the UAE Embassy in London – This attestation confirms that document has been legalized correctly, following the standard procedure. Official sticker of UAE Embassy-London Consular Section will be placed.
  4. Attestation by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) UAE – As the last and final step, this is where the document is fully & completely verified. Another UAE official sticker will be placed. Once done POA is ready & legal to use, unless the following step is applicable.
  5. Attestation by the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) of UAE (if applicable) – If your POA is going to be used in the court, Arabic translation and attestation by the Ministry of Justice would be required too.
