How to get an important document notarised



ABU DHABI // Getting documents notarised and attested takes a bit of leg work and lots of time, but new services by local notaries public is helping to make the process a little easier.
Nearly every embassy offers its citizens notary and attestation services, and will also provide some services to non-citizens who require documents related to visiting or doing business in its country.
Prices for these services can range from Dh100 to more than Dh500, depending on the documents and translation needs.
In Abu Dhabi emirate, 23 notary public branches approved by the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department also notarise documents in English and Arabic.
The centres - located in the capital, Al Ain and the Western Region - are typically open from 7.30am to 3pm, although three are open until 9.30pm. It would be advisable to call ahead to see if you would need to pay an additional fee to translate documents into Arabic.
These centres also provide attestation services, for authenticating the status of a divorce or registering a will, for example. Marriage contracts and conversion to Islam documents are also attested at these centres.
"All you need is Dh50 and a national ID," said the shopkeeper at the Al Rahba notary public office.
In Dubai, dozens of notary public services are available online but only in Arabic. The user fills out a template, then visits the Dubai Courts Notary Public, which are not located at the court but rather in Al Barsha and Al Qusais, to meet with the notary and witnesses. Charges start at Dh110.
