Legalization of documents in the UAE

Legalization of documents in the UAEThe United Arab Emirates is one of the most efficient and productive states in the Middle East. Due to the presence of special economic zones within the state, the UAE is an attractive place for the development of international business and the promotion of products and services on world markets. Legalization of documents in the UAE, issued by other government agencies, occurs only through the legalization of the law, since the UAE has not signed or ratified the 1961 Hague Convention on the Simplification of the Procedure for the Legalization of Documents for use outside the borders of the country. In connection with such a decision of the state authorities, there is a procedure for legalization of several stages, while the presence of diplomatic relations and the consulate of the country for which legalization is carried out on the territory of the UAE is a prerequisite.

When submitting any document for legalization, be it a corporate document of a company or a personal document of an individual, first of all, it will be sent to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for legalization by the authorized body of the UAE. At the same time, there is a peculiarity of each document, since individual documents, such as a license, a list of participants, can be legalized without providing the original, and for example, or the constituent agreement will be provided in the original. The next step, after certification by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, will provide the documents to the Consulate of the country.

    Legalization of documents in the UAE for the court

    Legalization of documents is sometimes necessary not only for concluding large contracts, opening bank accounts, using documents confirming education in a foreign state, but also before going to court for various reasons. The judicial system of many countries is based on common principles and one of them is the obligation to confirm to the court the possibility of the company being a plaintiff or defendants in court, that is, to confirm the active legal status of the company. In this case, the difficulty is the need to obtain an extract from the trade register, but not all legal entities are members of the UAE Chamber of Commerce and Industry, since this membership is paid, and certain types of business activities cannot be registered with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Despite such difficulties, specialists will find a way out even from such a situation.
