diploma attestation 225

Do you need your diploma attested (legalized, authenticated) for use in the United Arab Emirates?

Not all diplomas can be attested by the Embassy. Therefore, the first step is to make sure that your degree qualifies for the attestation by the UAE Embassy. General requirement: your educational institution must be located in the US and regionally accredited by NEASC (CIHE), MSA (CHE), NCA (HLC), SACS (COC), NWCCU, or WASC (ACCJC-ACSCU). To show proof of regional accreditation, please visit the CHEA Database (link is external, updated 03/01/2017) of Institutions and Programs and look for your institution’s accreditation information.

How to apostilleA client infomed us that his New Jersey apostille was rejected by Ukrainian authorities because it was stapled to the document. According to the Ukrainian notary, all apostilles have to be ribboned to the documents. Is this true?

No, it is not! According to the brochre issued by the Hague Convention (which clarifies many issues pertaining to apostilles), "failure to affix an Apostille to the public document in a particular manner is not a basis for refusing the Apostille"
