Teaching abroad in Qatar – Apostille, or authentication and legalization, of your Canadian documents

Published on Monday, August 12, 2013

You are embarking on an adventure by deciding to teach abroad in Qatar. Although there are many exciting details to plan, you will also need to prepare your personal and educational documents for use in Qatar. You will need to have your documents authenticated and legalized, also known as apostille or attestation. No matter which term is used, they all refer to the same process. 

The authentication and legalization process enables your Canadian documents to be recognized in Qatar. This two-step process involves having your documents authenticated at Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada (DFATD). Next, they must be legalized at the Embassy of Qatar in Canada.

Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada (DFATD) and the Embassy of Qatar each have very specific requirements for the authentication and legalization of Canadian documents. We specialize in processing Canadian documents, such as college diplomas and university degrees, transcripts, high school diplomas, marriage certificates and birth certificates.

Let us take care of the authentication and legalization, or apostille, of your educational and personal documents, saving you weeks of processing time! For more information call us toll free at 1-888-433-1011 or visit us at idocscanada.ca .
