When you are applying for employment or sponsorship for Dubai, part of the requirements for your visa processing would be to submit your university diploma and Transcript of Records (TOR).
To give you an idea, UAE will only accept these documents if they are attested by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA). However, you need to have your diploma authenticated by the UAE embassy located in the Philippines and have it authenticated with red ribbon by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).
Sounds like a lengthy process? Well it is required by the country so you have to comply if you want to make it to the country.
Read on and we’ll try to simplify things for you with this step-by-step guide:
- First, obtain a copy of your diploma and Transcript of Records.
In case you still haven’t done so, your first step is to get copies of your diploma and TOR. Head over to your school registrar and issue a request. This would usually require a fee but the amount may vary from one school to another. The school will then forward the documents to the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and DFA for red-ribbon sealing.
- Get a red ribbon authentication from DFA.
Make no mistake about it though since some schools will require you to bring the documents to DFA yourself. Otherwise, you will still need to visit their office so you can pay the fees for the red ribbon stamp.
- Next, get a UAE Embassy attestation via DHL.
Upon completion of the red ribbon stamping process, your next step would be to send your documents to the Philippine-based UAE embassy. DHL Express centers can help you with this and you’ll have to wait for up to 14 days to get the results. For course, certain fees are also required for this service namely P 550.00 for courier fee and P 1,700.00 for the embassy authentication fee.
- Send the documents to Dubai.
With your documents finally complete, they’re now ready to be sent to Dubai. Pick a courier of your choice and ship the documents to your sponsor, or any other concerned individual.
- Last step would be the MOFA attestation.
The documents should then be presented to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs where they should receive final authentication. A MOFA branch can be found in Bur Dubai but just be ready to pay AED 150.00 for the stamping fee.
