Document Attestation for UAE Good Conduct Certificate

Apr 25, 2018

If you are coming from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) or are headed there for work, you’ll need a Certificate of Good Conduct or Police Clearance from the UAE. This certificate is needed when passing a security clearance check for a new job, or when applying for permanent residency or a Canadian Citizenship.

It can feel confusing at first, but we’re here to help! As with all documents we legalize in Canada, if you have your credentials with you, we will take all of the guesswork out of the process. Here’s what you should know.

What is a Certificate of Good Conduct?

A Certificate of Good Conduct is issued to an expat by their country of origin. They need this when coming to the UAE on a work visa. If you’ve lived in a different country other than your country of origin, you’ll also need to produce a certificate from that country as well. If you’ve lived in the UAE for any amount of time over the last ten years, you’ll need one when coming to Canada as well. Although getting any international document attested or legalized can be tricky at times, we make the entire process easy for you.

What Documents Do You Need?

First thing’s first, you need to have your documents in order. To get a good conduct certificate, you’ll need the following:

  • Fingerprint form with all ten fingerprints
  • Two color passport photos
  • Passport from your country of origin
  • Application for Good Conduct Certificate

Attestation of documents

After you have all of these documents, you’ll need to have them either legalized or authenticated. The steps are relatively similar for each of the required documents, but the Fingerprint form can be a little different. These are the steps and requirements for the authentication and legalization (attestation) of your Fingerprint form:

First, you’ll need to get the fingerprint form from a local Canadian police detachment. After you fill it out and stamp your fingerprints, the form must be notarized. You must complete this step before you can proceed with authentication and legalization service. If you want to make the process easier, you can get a Certified Criminal Record Check (criminal record Certificate authentication) from the RCMP headquarters in Ottawa. This form doesn’t need to be notarized.

Next, you’ll need to have your fingerprint form authenticated by the Department of Foreign Affairs in Ottawa. After you have it authenticated you can then have it legalized.

To have the form legalized, you’ll submit them to the Police Department at the Ministry of Interior at the specific Emirate in the UAE. Make sure to check the latest requirements by visiting the official Embassy of the United Arab Emirates website.
