New Legalization Procedure

01 Nov 1999

As of August 1999, the Foreign Ministry of the United Arab Emirates has enforced a regulation requiring that all documents legalized by its embassies be locally authenticated. Therefore, all documents filed locally (at the Ministry of Commerce and Trade) need to be checked by the Foreign Ministry for completion of the prescribed fees. All Trademark agents and lawyers have to therefore authenticate all documents, even if those used previously.
Local authentication costs US$28.00 to US$275.00 depending on previously paid dues to the embassies. Please contact our UAE office for more details.
