The process of Divorce Certificate Attestation for UAE:
Divorce certificate attestation is a multi-step process that is difficult for one individual to complete on their own. Therefore, it is always best to contact a reputable provider of attestation services like BLS Document Services. Prior to being forwarded to the UAE Embassy or UAE Consulate in the home country for verification and legalization, the divorce document must first be reviewed by the home department of the country that issued it, followed by the ministry of foreign affairs or ministry of external affairs. After completing the first three procedures, it is forwarded to the UAE's Ministry of Foreign Affairs for attestation.
