Attestation of Birth Certificate for UAE

Thinking of settling in the UAE? You aren’t alone! Whether you are a native returning to the land or pursuing a career or employment there, many individuals and families decide to call the UAE their home every year. There is a process to obtain a residency status, and you will need certain documentation to apply for it. You will need to add each member of your family to the residency status, as well. For your children born in Canada, birth certificates along with copies of their passport will need to be provided. Read on to learn about the process of preparing a Canadian birth certificate for use in UAE!

How do you obtain a Canadian birth certificate?

Whether you are in the country at the time or not, Canadian birth certificates are easy to obtain. Make sure you fill in the online application requests for either the short or long form. For the purpose of your UAE residency visa, it is best to order the long form. This one will contain more detail than the short certificate. Information such as place of birth and the names of both parents, along with details of the child are included in this form. Contrarily, the short form certificate only includes the child’s full name and place of birth.

Preparing a birth certificate for use in UAE

The Canadian government itself issues birth certificates. However, you can’t include it in your UAE residency application as is. In order to make the document valid, it must undergo attestation, known as authentication and legalization in Canada. While the two terms are different, the process of attestation and authentication/legalization are identical. Other parts of the world also call it ‘apostille’. After you complete the 2 steps listed below, your birth certificate for UAE will be ready.

How do you have your Canadian birth certificate attested?

The first step is authentication. You need to submit your document to Global Affairs Canada (GAC) along with an application form. GAC is the only government body in Canada that is responsible for authentication of all Canadian documents. Their head office is located in Ottawa and their task is to review the signatures and stamps on the document to ensure that they are valid. Along with this, they also ensure that any document provided to them contains the information and structure necessary to qualify for authentication.

Once the forms are submitted to GAC, it can take 10 days or more for your documents to be authenticated. But an attestation professional can significantly reduce this wait time. For example, Legalization Service Centre can have your documents authenticated within one business day at GAC. All you need to do is provide a letter or a document declaring the urgency of your business. This is because we have a strong network and years of experience with authentication. This can also lead you to save money on the process, as any corrections to the process after you submit your form will require additional fees.

The Final Step: Legalization

After authenticated, you must submit the document(s) to the UAE embassy for legalization. Legalization involves the embassy conducting their own review to ensure that the document meets their country’s standard and that it contains a valid GAC stamp.  Most embassies are located in Ottawa, in close proximity to the GAC office as well as the physical location of Legalization Service Centre. While legalization is not difficult to obtain, it can be a challenge if you are trying to complete it from somewhere outside of Ottawa. Since our office is intentionally close to both, it makes it easy for us to complete the submissions and conduct follow-ups until the entire attestation process is complete.

At Legalization Service Centre, we understand how tedious paperwork can be. Moving from one country to another is not an easy task. Obtaining residency and settling in the UAE may be exciting, but there is a lot of work to be done. Having your documents authenticated is just a hurdle in the process which can be even more difficult due to distance. Give us a call if you need more information or would like to have us take care of this important part of your paperwork. We are always happy to chat, even if it is only to share more information!

Legalization of Power of Attorney for Russia

As we hit June and approach the middle of 2021, the global COVID-19 pandemic hits its 1.5 year mark. We are patiently waiting as the population of the entire world slowly receives vaccination so that our world can go back to normal. You may have faced the reality that you can’t put off many priorities for later. If you have ties to Russia, travel for any reason may be out of question at the moment. The risks and travel restrictions have made conducting business and affairs quite difficult. But as the old adage goes, “where there is a will, there is a way!” If you are poised to conduct important affairs that cannot wait, you need to complete an attestation of a power of attorney for Russia.

What is a Power of Attorney?

If you are reading this article, you probably have a very good idea as to what a POA is and why you need one. But to summarize, a Power of Attorney (POA) is a document that assigns someone else with legal decision-making authority on your behalf. The person you assign with this responsibility is known as your “attorney”. Acting in your best interest, your attorney may make important decisions regarding your property, finances, or even medical care. While anyone of your choosing can be your attorney, some limitations exist. These are as follows:

  • The attorney must be of legal age and mental capacity to carry on the duties outlined in the POA.
  • The attorney must not be your child or a person you treat as your child.

Forms for POAs are readily accessible online. Alternatively, you can speak to a legal advisor to prepare one that is unique and specific for your needs. If the matter is particularly sensitive, it may be wise to consult with an advisor regarding any conditions and limitations you may want to include.

Should you use a POA?

Whether or not to use a POA is a very personal decision. Entrusted to the right person, POAs can be very handy tools to bring a means to an end. For example, if you simply cannot be present in Russia for important financial or property matters that absolutely cannot wait, then a POA may be your only option. However, remember that you are sharing a big responsibility with someone else. In many ways, providing a POA can make you and your business/assets vulnerable. For this reason, it is very important to choose someone you trust. You must be confident that the attorney you chose will act responsibly and intelligently in your best interest.

What’s next when it comes to authentication and legalization of Power of Attorney for Russia?

Before you can use a power of attorney outside of Canada, you need to take it through attestation. Since you are in Canada, make sure you notarize it with a Canadian notary before that. You may have heard of “authentication and legalization” before. In fact, this is the exact same process as attestation. They are essentially comparable, globally and locally, so do not worry about the differences in phrasing!

Legalization of Power of Attorney for Russia: Step 1

Once you notarize your POA for use in Russia, you will need to submit it to Global Affairs Canada (GAC) located in Ottawa. GAC conducts authentication for all formal documents undergoing the process. If you submit the document personally, it typical takes 20 business days for your document to be authenticated. Contrarily, using an attestation expert such as Legalization Service Centre (LSC) can help reduce this time. This is due to our years of experience in the business and extensive network within GAC. Once GAC is satisfied that your POA meets all the standards and validity tests, they will place a large red stamp to indicate that your document has been authenticated.

Legalization of Power of Attorney for Russia: Step 2

Following authentication, your document will need to be submitted to the Russian Embassy for legalization. During this step, the embassy will conduct their own review of the POA to ensure that the GAC stamp is valid. They will also ensure that the power of attorney meant for Russia meets their specific standards for use in Russia and if satisfied, they will attach a certificate or stamp to indicate that the POA has been legalized.

One note for consideration here is that the regulations and requirements at embassies change regularly. The standards and measures of acceptability from earlier this year may no longer apply now. It is can be difficult to keep up with ongoing changes if you aren’t familiar with the process. However, expert attestation professionals usually have the most current embassy information and can guide you accordingly. At Legalization Service Centre, our active work and close physical proximity to most embassies results in the most accurate and current information. Having these at your fingertips can save you tons of time, money, and hassle.

Power of Attorney Attestation for the Philippines

With crystal blue beaches, balmy weather, and amicable hospitality, the Philippines has garnered a lot of tourist attention. But more importantly, the likes of these qualities has made the collection of islands a booming centre for outsourced businesses. Whether you are a native or a foreigner, there are many reasons to keep visiting! However, recent restrictions due to the pandemic has made travel to the Philippines something of a nuisance. For one thing, the local government there has taken strict lockdown and international border control measures to limit the pandemic. Moreover, Canadian restrictions on travel and quarantining requirements don’t make matters easier. However, some business, property, or financial affairs must be fulfilled regardless. How exactly do you go about fulfilling your obligations? Simple: through a Philippine Power of Attorney (POA).

What is a POA?

Through a Power of Attorney (POA,) you can assign a trusted adult in the Philippines to carry on your responsibilities. This person can make important financial, property, or business decisions on your behalf. Since many transactions can require your legal consent or signature, assigning someone with a power of attorney allows that person to sign on your behalf. POA’s have been a blessing and a boon during this difficult pandemic. If you’ve decided to follow this route, there are a few key steps you must complete in Canada for your POA to be valid in the Philippines.

Decide who to assign as your attorney

A Power of Attorney is a powerful tool. In the right hands, this tool will allow you to carry on your affairs that would otherwise be difficult to conduct. Choosing the right capable adult is a personal decision since only you know best who to assign with important responsibilities. However, when making the decision, keep in mind that this person cannot be your spouse, child, or anyone you would treat as your child. Your chosen attorney must also be someone who is over the age of 18 and is mentality capable of carrying the functions required of them. But most importantly, this person must be someone you can trust very much.

Philippines Power of Attorney: Notarization and Signing 

There are different ways to create a Power of Attorney and different wording/formatting for varying purposes. Depending on what your purpose is (financial, property, or medical), you will have to choose the correct pre-made form from an online source or have a lawyer draft a POA uniquely for you. Regardless of whether you choose a form or have the document drafted, you must notarize and sign the completed document. Traditionally, you must sign the document in front of a lawyer or notary public, along with two witnesses. Due to social distancing practices currently, there are options for completing this step via video-conferences. You should research services online to find a suitable match in your province.

Philippines Power of Attorney: Attestation

Step 1. Authentication of Philippines Power of Attorney

Once you have signed your POA (also known as “swearing”), it must undergo authentication and legalization. In order to complete authentication, the document must be submitted to Global Affairs Canada (GAC) located in Ottawa. Here, your document will spend roughly 20 days to complete the process of authentication. During this step, GAC will review your POA for the validity of the signatures on the document along with format and other requirements. Once they are satisfied with the trueness of the document, they will affix a large red stamp signifying that the Philippines power of attorney has been authenticated.

While anyone can submit documents to GAC for authentication, going about this by yourself can make the process unnecessarily lengthy and expensive. Each revision at GAC requires additional fees for corrections and adds more time to completion. Comparatively, choosing an expert authentication representative such as Legalization Service Centre can cut down your wait time significantly. Due to our networks with GAC, we can have your documents authenticated in as little as one business day.

Step 2. Legalization of Philippines Power of Attorney

They will place a stamp of legalization on your POA, once satisfied. This step confers the attestation of your Philippines power of attorney!

Similar to our network with GAC, at Legalization Service Centre, we have networks and up-to-date information on all of the embassies located in Ottawa. Since the requirements at the embassies can change frequently, this means that we always have correct and relevant information on hand.

Attestation of a Power of Attorney for Israel

One of the greatest hurdles of this pandemic has been the limitations placed on international travel. Travel outside of Canada has been challenging, and this difficulty applies to travel to Israel as well. This has caused a great deal of concern for many. For one thing, those with businesses or legal/financial matters in Israel have found it difficult to carry on their duties from afar. But what do you do for matters that cannot wait for your presence there? One optimal solution may be to sign an Israel Power of Attorney.

A Power of Attorney (POA) during these difficult times can be a game changing tool. Through a POA, you can assign a trusted and capable adult over the age of 18 to carry on legal matters regarding your finances or property in Israel. Acting on your best interest, this “attorney” would be able to make decisions on your behalf, sign legal documents, and perform other tasks as you prescribe. So now that you’ve decided to authorize an individual as your attorney, what do you do next?

Step 1: Draft the Israel Power of Attorney

Since this is a legally binding document offering significant control to another person on your personal matters or property, it’s important to draft this document carefully. You may wish to consult a legal professional and have them draft out your POA. Alternatively, there are pre-made forms that you can fill out for the type of POA of relevance to you. These forms are readily available on different websites and platforms online.

Step 2: Notarization and Witnessed Signing 

Because of the sensitive nature of an Israel Power of Attorney, it is important that other people are witness to you granting power to your attorney. For this reason, you will need to sign your document (also known as “swearing it”) in the presence of two witnesses and a notary public. Usually this step would happen in a notary public’s office, however, due to the pandemic, many of these institutions are providing this service via video conference calls online. Check your province for available services that will allow you to do this. Otherwise, see if you can safely visit a local legal advisory or notary public to complete the witnessed signing.

Keep in mind, your witnesses must not be a spouse, child, or anyone you consider as a child. They must be over the age of 18 and must be capable of understanding the gravity of the document.

Step 3: Contact Legalization Service Centre for Authentication and Legalization

Since your Power of Attorney will be used in Israel, it is necessary to have the document authenticated and legalized. Otherwise, your POA will not be valid in Israel. While you may complete these processes on your own, this approach can prove to be time and money-consuming. For one thing, authentication happens at Global Affairs Canada, whose office is located in Ottawa. From the time of submission, it may take up to 20 days for GAC to review and authenticate your document. Alternatively, when we process and submit to them, your documents can be authenticated within one business day. Since we are an established service provider and have been in practice for many years, our networks within GAC allow us to bypass the wait-time. Moreover, forms submitted by us are skillfully reviewed to omit errors and omissions which could otherwise make your process longer and more expensive.

At Legalization Service Centre, our agents also keep track of changes and requirement updates at individual embassies. This means that we always have the most current and accurate information regarding the Israel embassy’s legalization process for POAs.
