True copy attestation is a process of certifying a photocopy of an original document as a certified true copy. True copy of a document is usually required for official purposes to confirm that the document is authentic and was not forged. Basically, a lawyer or a solicitor cross-check the original documents and sign and stamp the photocopies with a note “I certify that this document is a true copy of the original”. Usually, the true copy attestation is done for following documents, although they are used or submitted outside the UAE:

  • Passports
  • IDs
  • Utility bills
  • Tenancy contracts (EJARI)
  • Application forms
