Medical certificate is a written declaration from a medical professional confirming patient attending a medical test. In some parts of the planet, it is also labeled as sick report. Your medical certificate should be attested in UAE if you have taken the test outside UAE’s jurisdiction. The attestation process involves verification from several institutions which provide stamps or seals to the document in order to prove the authenticity.

Our Process of Medical Certificate Attestation
There are a lot of steps that our attestation team has to follow in order to implement a proper attestation of a medical certificate. It also involves several different institutions and countries. The process in getting a medical certificate properly attested by various entities involves the following:
Notary Public Attestation
This is an absolutely crucial step which has to be done prior to other kinds of verification for one medical certificate. A notary public in UAE or in the issuing country of the medical certificate will have to perform the notary attestation and provide a stamp or signature on the document. A notary is a fundamental authority when it comes to a medical certificate authentication procedure. Notary public attestation is also required for attestation of other documents such as educational certificates or diplomas and marriage contracts.
Home Department Attestation
A medical certificate has to be verified by the country’s Home Department. Other personal documents will be requested by the local authority before they provide their signature or stamp.
Ministry of External or Foreign Affairs Attestation
The ministry will provide its stamp for a medical certificate that went through the verification processes of the aforementioned authorities. This step is also mandatory, most especially for medical certificates. The ministry is a prime department which looks after a state’s foreign issues.
The process of embassy attestation is performed by embassy of document’s issuing country that is based in UAE. This may be the final step if there is no need for legal translation of relevant documents.
Duration of the entire medical certificate attestation process can differ, depending on the availability of the different local authorities, state of origin of documents, country of use, and the documents that are furnished together with the attestation application.
