Attesting Documents – New Zealand


Start with Step 1.  Then take or send the resulting document(s) to the office listed in Step 2, then take or send the document(s) to the office in Step 3; and so on. All steps must be completed with the ultimate goal of having the document(s) attested by a U.A.E. Consulate or Embassy. We recommend you check the Web site of each organization or speak to them before proceeding as many of these organizations have specific hours for the receipt and delivery of documents, strict requirements for the submission of the document(s) and you will need to check the timelines and fees.
