The United Arab Emirates is not a member of the Hague Apostille Convention. The Apostille certificate process is not followed. South African documents destined for use in the United Arab Emirates is legalised through an Authentication process regulated by High Court Rule 63. Additionally to the authentication process, the document must also go through an Embassy Attestation process at the UAE Embassy.
