True Copy Attestation

True Copy Attestation – A photocopy of an original document is certified as a genuine copy via the procedure of attestation. For official reasons, a true copy of a document is often needed to verify that it is real and wasn’t fake. Basically, a lawyer or a solicitor will verify the authenticity of the original papers before signing and stamping the photocopies and adding the words “I certify that this document is a genuine copy of the original.” Even when they are used or presented outside the UAE, the following papers often have their genuine copies attested:

  • Passports.
  • IDs
  • Utility bills
  • Tenancy contracts
  • Application forms
  • Academic documents
  • Experience certificates
  • Photos

In the UAE, lawyers, notaries public, or other authorities who issued the document typically certify true copies of personal documents. For instance, the authorities that issued a company document (such as a license, share certificate, commercial registry, etc.) can certify their true copy.

However, in some countries (such as Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, etc.), in order for a legal document to be valid, it must also be witnessed and stamped by a lawyer or a solicitor.
