Document legalization process

  • 1) Document legalization by the Russian Consulate

    Documents undergo verification by three authorities in Russia – the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the UAE Consulate in Russia.

  • 2) Document legalization by governmental bodies in the UAE

    The subsequent step in legalization, after the documents have been reviewed and approved by the Russian Consulate, involves transferring the documents to the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The UAE Ministry verifies and approves the documents. Then the documents are translated into Arabic at the UAE Ministry of Justice.
