Superlegalization of Canada-issued documents is a process where certificates are made legally valid and fit for use in other countries. The process involves getting the required approval from the destination country’s embassy in Canada. That means if you were intending to use the documents in the UAE for instance, then you would need to get them attested at the UAE embassy in Canada, the same way as getting attestation services in Dubai if you wanted to use a UAE-issued certificate in Canada.
Every nation’s embassies and consulates extend stipulations which need to be followed strictly in order for such a process to go smoothly. One prime example is when you want to authorize someone to handle property, which you own in the UAE. In such a case, your Canadian power of attorney would need to legalized for use in the UAE first. Before this can be done, the Canadian document needs to first be authenticated by the government there. The Global Affairs Canada Authentication Sector would take care of this for all provinces of origin, but restrictions and requirements would be different in some cases. The right ones can be confirmed by getting in touch with an attestation agency.
It goes without saying that the whole thing can be very confusing for the first-timer, such as when legalizing a degree for use in Qatar, which also requires the additional step of legalizing official transcripts, and then getting the confirmation letter from your respective university. On top of all that, the institution is required to send in the official transcripts along with the true copy of the certificate. This should reach the Qatar Embassy located in Ottawa so that they may fully legalize your certificate for use in Qatar. The process is often complex enough to make your head spin if you try to take it on without assistance. The main benefit of hiring the finest document attestation Dubai has to offer is that you get a lot of weight taken off your shoulders.
