Changes to the legalization requirements at the Embassy of Qatar

Published on Tuesday, May 31, 2016

If you need to use your Canadian documents in Qatar, they will need to go through a process called authentication and legalization, also known as attestation. No matter which term is used, they refer to the same process.

The authentication and legalization process enables your Canadian documents, such as University degrees, to be recognized in Qatar. This process involves having your documents authenticated at Global Affairs Canada. Next, they must be legalized at the Embassy of Qatar in Ottawa.

The Embassy of Qatar has always had very specific requirements for the authentication and legalization of educational documents. For example, in order to legalize a University degree your educational institution must issue a sealed set of transcripts directly to the Embassy. Without the transcripts on hand the Embassy of Qatar will refuse your University degree.

As of June 1st, 2016, there are additional requirements at the Embassy of Qatar. They still require the transcripts directly from the University. However, now you must present the original University degree along with an original set of transcripts. Both the degree and the transcripts will need to be authenticated and legalized.

We can help you authenticate and legalize your educational documents for use in Qatar, ensuring your documents meet the criteria of the process.
