Document Attestation Service for Saudi Arabia
Global Documents Attested into KSA
Saudi Arabia poses a specific set of challenges when attesting documents, due to their phased approach to their certification and authentication process passing through multiple government agencies in both origin and KSA, then ultimately ending with MOFA (Ministry of Foreign Affairs) approval.
Document attestation is compulsory for professionals who wish to receive a visa and accept a job in the Kingdom. This is to assure the government of Saudi Arabia that you are appropriately qualified, or you are legitimate as a company. These requirements also extend to people wishing to apply for a Saudi Arabian business visit visa, study visa or residence visa.

Attestation / Notary Guidelines
MOFA Attestation in Saudi Arabia is a service that is available to everybody who wishes to take advantage of a job offer, enroll in an educational course or become a citizen of KSA. For individuals, it is a very involved and time consuming process.
KSA Attestation requires that your documents need to be attested in-country by the relevant body that is authorised by the state. We can help you with this and in most circumstances, it has already been done for another reason in the past.
However if it is required, we will submit the following BEFORE sending it throught the Saudi process:
Initially, your documents need to be attested at the state level, for example at your chamber of commerce or equivalent, alongside an MOU from your current employer.
You may need to have the documents confirmed and stamped by your Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
For educational documents, you will need to engage the Saudi Arabia Cultural Bureau in your issuing country. Here, you will receive verification prior to attestation.
Finally you will then finish the multi-step process with embassy attestation, where the embassy attests and legalizes the document. Further to this, you will then apply for MOFA approval.
