FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT qatar LEGALISATION

Yes, document legalisation can be done when you are overseas. You have two options; The first option is by couriering your original documents to our office based in London. Alternatively, a cheaper and easier option would be to send a scanned copy of your original documents via email which can be processed as true copies of the original document. Although, public documents can only be legalised on the original so if you require a birth certificate to be attested, for example, you will need to send us the original document.

Yes, it is possible to get the documents attested by yourself. But we would advise against this in case of any errors or omission while getting the documents attested by yourself. To avoid any hassle all you need to do is provide us with the documents and we will complete the legalisation service for you

Yes, however Masters’ and PHD qualifications are the only acceptable certificates that can be legalised by the Embassy of Qatar. Other distance learning qualifications are not recognised in Qatar.

Yes, you would have to provide a letter of attendance from the educational institute along with a transcript of the qualification attained. Ultimately, 3 documents would be required to have an education certificate legalised. Please note that this is only applicable to educational certificates that are Level 5 or higher.

The legalisation process is a three-step procedure. The steps include:

1. Certification - this can be done by a UK solicitor or notary public (public documents do not require this step). Simply put, it is a stamp confirming if a document is an original or a true copy, followed by the signature of the solicitor/notary and the date.
2. Apostille Certificate – this involves the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) whereby the document is authenticated as a UK issued document. A small paper certificate is affixed onto the back of the document if approved.
3. Qatar Embassy Legalisation – this is the final step where the document will be attested by the embassy; A small sticker will be affixed to the document confirming that the document has been legalised. Documents need to be stamped by the embassy to be accepted in Qatar.
This concludes the legalisation process for a document to be recognised in Qatar.

We aim to have your documents legalised in 9-10 working days from start to finish. Upon completion of the document legalisation, you have the option to have it sent to a UK address or to have it dispatched to Qatar via DHL.

• public document is £130
• personal document is £140
We offer a package to legalise educational documents for £390 (certificate, letter of attendance and transcript)
The cost of commercial document legalisation is £280 – these include business documents

To legalise an education document, three documents will be required:
1. Qualification Certificate – for example, degree, masters’
2. Transcript
3. Letter of Attendance, with the following criteria:
• Mode of Study: whether full-time or part-time
• Type of Study: whether distance learning (E-Learning) or Face to Face learning (on campus)
• Location of Study
• Location of Examinations
• The actual dates of study (start and end dates)
We offer a package for all three documents to be legalised for £360

A Qatar attestation is a sticker that is stamped and sealed from the Qatar embassy that confirms the authenticity of a document from the UK for it to be recognised in Qatar.

Generally, only the document itself is required for legalisation. However, for educational documents the embassy requests a passport copy of the individual whose document is being attested.

The process for getting UK documents legalised for Qatar is as follows:

1. Send your documents to us via post, courier or scanned copy (where applicable).
2. We will check to see if your documents are in order and then will begin the legalisation process.
3. Once the legalisation process is complete, we will send you a soft copy along with the legalised documents via post (if in the UK) or via DHL (for international deliveries).

Documents issued in the UK that need to be attested for Qatar can only be done so from the Embassy of Qatar in London. This can be done yourself or to save time and effort, you can authorise us to process your documents on your behalf.

UK residents require document legalisation from the Embassy of the State of Qatar in order to ensure that your documents are valid for use in Qatar. The embassy will authenticate the documents for it to be recognised by the relevant authorities in Qatar. This will be necessary for UK citizens for purposes such as Qatar visa and residency when moving to Qatar.

Yes, all documents that are sent to us are returned at the completion of legalisation.

No, documents that are legalised do not have an expiry date and are therefore valid indefinitely.

No, because Qatar is not a member of the Hague Convention: an agreement that abolishes the need to legalise foreign public documents. Therefore, UK documents for use in Qatar require Qatar legalisation.

Once the legalisation process has been completed in the UK, the documents will require attestation by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) in Qatar. This is the final step and in most cases this procedure is carried out by employers.
