Attestation from the relevant state authority is necessary for the first phase of general Attestation. Attestation from the issuing state, known as a “state attestation,” is the most basic form of Attestation. The HRD, GAD, SDM, etc., are all state-issued certifications that the respective authorized organization must verify before they may be used.
After a state verification of an MEA, the document can be attested. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MEA) confirmed the document’s legitimacy and says it can now be used in Saudi Arabia and around the world. It’s time for General Attestation Phase Two.
Following completion of state and MEA attestation and cultural attestation in the case of educational certificates, the next step is attestation by the Saudi Arabian Embassy. The embassy must legalize and authenticate the document before it can be used in Saudi Arabia.
The following are examples of acceptable supporting documentation for attesting your certificates:
- The first-issued certificate
- Letter of Offer and Employment Contract
- Identification Document (Copy of Passport)
- A Candidate’s Photograph
- The Cover Letter, Authorization Letter, or Consent Letter
Attestation by the Saudi Embassy lasts for varying amounts, depending on the type of certificate being authenticated. The vast majority of our certifications, however, are issued via these methods. For the Saudi embassy attestation process, we must adhere to the following guidelines regularly:
The HRD Certification Process
- Certification by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MEA)
- Legalization by the Saudi Embassy
