Step by Step Legalization Process:

  1. Notarization / Re-notarization – Our US partner who’s based in Washington, DC office will accommodate you for the notarization. We know that our clients may be based in different parts of the States so if you’re not near this office, you may still have your POA notarized in any State after which you may courier the notarized POA to our Washington, DC office where we’ll have it re-notarized, without your personal presence.
  2. Authentication by Secretary of State – This is the part of the legalization process where the veracity of the document will be identified to be true, genuine and valid by the Secretary of State. If POA was notarized in Washington, DC, then it’s Secretary State shall authenticate. Authentication Certificate will be attached.
  3. Apostille by the US Department of State – This step will ratify the seals, signatures and stamps of public officials on the document.
  4. Legalization by the UAE Embassy in Washington, D.C, USA – This attestation confirms that document has been legalized correctly, following the standard procedure. This is also where interpretation of document will be discerned solely by the office-bearing authority, whether it’s for Personal or for Commercial. Official sticker of UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs-Washington Consular Section will be placed.
  5. Attestation by Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) UAE – As the last and final step, this is where the document is fully & completely verified. Another official sticker will be placed. Once done POA is ready & legal to use.
