Step by Step Legalization Process:

  1. Notarization – First step is to notarize your Power of Attorney. We have a partner notary in Canberra, who will accommodate you for the notarization. If you come from a different city in Australia, you may still have your POA notarized in any Australian notary public near you, after which you may courier the notarized POA to our Canberra office where we can proceed to Step 2. Signature/Seal/Stamp of a notary public shall be seen.
  2. Authentication by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) – This is the part of the legalization process where it confirms the signature of the public official who conducted the notarization. It confirms the authenticity of the signature, seal, or stamp on the public document. Authentication Certificate will be attached along with a seal and a stamp.
  3. Legalization by the UAE Embassy in Canberra, Australia – This attestation confirms that document has been legalized correctly, following the standard procedure. Official sticker of UAE Embassy-Canberra 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.
  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.
