How to Process UAE Attestation Certificates in the Philippines

Procedure and Requirements for UAE Attestation Certificates

This article goes over the procedures and requirements for processing UAE attestation and authentication of certificates in the Philippines. This is for those who are asking questions and information about UAE authentication and stamps from my “How to get DFA Red Ribbon" page.

OFWs (Overseas Filipino Workers) are usually the ones who need these documents. Learn why we need attestation, what it's for, what the requirements are, and how to process them.

What is a Certificate of Attestation?

This certificate confirms the authenticity of a person's document, like their diploma, TOR (Transcript or Records), birth certificate, certificate of nationality, marriage certificate, professional licenses, technical training diploma and the like. Such confirmation is often required by foreign countries like UAE, Saudi Arabia, USA, Canada and more. These papers are related to DFA Red Ribbon certificates as they are the same thing as UAE attestations and stamps. People just use different names.

Steps in Processing UAE Attestation

The usual process includes verification from the government authorities here in the Philippines followed by authentication of the documents in the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) and then submission to the UAE Embassy or Consulate office for attestation and stamping.

Step 1:

These documents are required to be verified by the authorizing parties issuing them:

  • DepEd – for elementary and primary school certificates
  • CHED – for secondary and college certificates like diploma and TOR
  • TESDA – for technical training certificates
  • PRC – for professional licenses
  • NSO – for authenticated documents like birth certificate, marriage certificate, CENOMAR and the like
  • NBI – NBI clearance

Requirements: Original and certified true copies of the documents are required. You will also pay some fees for the issuance of copies for each document (ie: P125 for NSO BC, P150 for NBI clearance, etc.)

Step 2:

After that, these documents are forwarded to the DFA to be authenticated. The DFA will give you back the documents from Step 1 with certificates attached indicating their authenticity and attesting to their genuineness.

Requirements: The original and certified true copies of documents you have submitted for Step 1 and any verification paper attached by those authorities. You will pay fees for getting copies of each document (P100 per authentication in the DFA).

Step 3:

UAE Embassy Attestation. All documents are stamped at the UAE Embassy.

Requirements: All your previously gathered documents and certificates. You may have to pay some fees P1700 and above.

Steps 2 and 3 can be done at any DHL branch nationwide. You will pay additional fees for the freight and delivery charges. You will also be required to prepare a Manager’s Check for the UAE attestation payment (P1700) and other fees for the DFA Red Ribbon which costs a few hundred pesos per document. Take note, these prices may change.

The processing time for DFA authentication is 2 weeks or less. It just depends upon the holidays here in the Philippines or the pile of applications. You know how it is here.

There are UAE and Dubai attestation services offered by local agencies in the country. However, they charge higher prices for processing your papers. We can do it ourselves anyway and save more money.

Usually about two weeks or more depending on the files of application or depending on the completeness and consistency of your papers

@Ely yes because UAE is not Saudi. The two are different

Hi 25! Thanks for the info. According kasi sa DHL na pinag-tanungan ko is 1700Php ang fee PER RED RIBBON if mgpapa attest sa UAE embassy. Mejo madami kasi ako docs. Hiwalay ba ang red ribbon ng Diploma, TOR and RLE from school (that is 1700 each ang babayaran ko for UAE embassy attestation?). If from PRC I requested 3 docs hiwa-hiwalay din ba red ribbon nun? thanks!

Yes each document will have its own Red Ribbon authenticated document. It is kinda pricey at DHL since they will do all the things for you including the delivery. If you want to save money, just process them yourself. :)

UAE attestation service can be easily and conveniently done via DHL if you are not sure of what you are doing in the process.

hi 25! can DHL do red ribbon and attestation in just a single process? how about if the ToR & Diploma was not authenticated by CHED, will it be red ribboned? thanks

twentyfive profile image

twentyfive 4 years ago Author

Yes I think they offer services for Red Ribbon and UAE attestation but it costs some thousands of pesos. TOR and Diploma will be Red Ribbon after they have been verified at CHED however some State Universities just forward them to DFA straightly.

i just want to ask how can i process my diploma to have a red ribbon? im here in dubai right now... and my country is Philippines..

twentyfive profile image

twentyfive 4 years ago Author

Have your diploma certified by your school registrar as true copy and pass it at CHED to get verified and then they will you stub for claiming the Red Ribbon in DFA. You may proceed to DHL after CHED if you want the document to be delivered to you without going to DFA. If you're in Dubai, just authorize your sister or brother to process it for you

You can authorize your friend to process them on your behalf. DHL is convenient although you have no personal touch with them compared to doing it directly at the embassy. It takes 2 weeks usually, sometimes 10 days

twentyfive profile image

twentyfive 4 years ago Author

You need to get new ones because the DFA won't authenticate them if they are not valid and if they are expired.

Henry 4 years ago

Too bad.. :( They should offer a renewal services for authenticated documents since it has an expiration. It's hassle to request a TOR or any documents needed for authentication. Anyway, thank you!

twentyfive profile image

twentyfive 4 years ago Author

I've never experience processing directly to DFA since my university was not a state university so I still have to go through CHED. I think you need to go to your school registrar for the Red Ribbon authentication and they will process your docs for you without needing to go to Ched anymore

Hi Twenty Five,

Thank you for the being a great help to everybody.

I am currently working in the UAE - Dubai to be specific. I came here as a visitor and was eventually hired in 2010. I had my red-ribboned documents with me but the company didn't require anything like that so I have kept the docs with me for nearly three years now. A new job opportunity knocked on my door and one of the requirements to get in is the attested docs from the UAE Embassy in Manila which i failed to do as i was totally unaware i had to do it. I only had the stamp from DFA.

So i then couriered my docs to a friend who can act on my behalf in dealing with UAE Embassy in Manila. She went to DHL office in her area and was advised that she needed to get fresh docs from the school I graduated and do the whole process all over again.

My question is can she get authenticated docs for me on my behalf? Or can she process the whole thing for me?

Please help me with the other steps i might have missed here.

Thanks and regards,

MOFA dubai told me to go to phil. consulate dubai to have a stamp and back to mofa. My question is do i need to get a stamp first from uae embassy in the philippines then after going to phil consulate in dubai, or i can go directly to phil consulate in dubai and get a stamp and proceed back to mofa?

Hi, thanks for the informative article. I'd just like to ask a question regarding what a certain staff of DHL told me. I went to DHL today to secure their services to have my marriage certificate and birth certificates (all copies from NSO) of my family attested by the UAE embassy. I had already previously gone to the DFA and had all my certificates authenticated (red ribbon). But the staff at DHL told me that I had to secure a copy from the Local Civil Registry of all the birth certificates and my marriage contract as additional requirements. I asked why the NSO certificates with DFA red ribbon were not enough, the guy replied "kasi napepeke ang mga yan" (Those things can be faked). I was shocked. So my question is, do I really need to provide copies from the Civil Registrar? I checked with the Legalisation of the UAE embassy website and there was no mention of it. It was only mentioned that if one could not get a copy from NSO then the copy from the Civil Registrar was used. So because of my lack of Local Civil Registrar copies I wasn't able to have my certificates processed for authentication. I do hope you could enlighten me. Sorry for the long post. Thanks.

My TOR-CAV-Graduation_certificate was considered as one document when I went to DHL.

I went back to DHL to have my PRC documents red-ribboned at DFA. They just told me that it isn't considered as one document anymore? It it happens to be separate, then it would be 4x the fee which is P2,250 x 4 documents= P9,000! Where they wrong?

my diploma and tor was red ribbon back in january 2014 but unfortunately i didn't able to proceed with uae ettestation due to lack of time since i travelled on the same month of january 2014 to dubai, sine the validity of red ribbon is one year only, my question is, can i still use the same attachment and remove the old authentication certificate and re apply it again for new red ribbon.?

RodrigoDuterte 10 months ago

Renelyn Rivera,

Your friend needs a Special Power of Attorney (SPA), that includes his/her name and address in that document. This SPA should be done in the Philippine Embassy UAE - since you are there, as per requirement of DFA 2016. Signed, Notarized, and send this document to your friend.

Note: Do not send via email/online. This has to be an original document.

Your friend needs 2 copies of your Passport/ID, & another 2 copies of his/her Passport/ID.

Hi There,

I have all my documents attested before by Saudi Embassy (Manila) sometimes in 2000. I need my docs attested by UAE Embassy in Manila. My question is should i still start the process all over again (meaning school, DFA) or can i submit the documents all attested before by Saudi Arabia Embassy in Manila and be attested by the UAE Embassy in Manila.. Appreciate your response. Thanks
