About the Document Attestation Process
The document attestation process is used to verify the authenticity of Canadian documents, so that these documents will be officially recognized in another country. In Canada, document attestation is more commonly referred to as “document authentication and legalization”. It is also sometimes referred to as the “apostille” process. The Canadian document attestation process has three steps. Click on the images below to learn more about each of three steps.

If you need your Canadian documents officially recognized in Qatar, they will need to go through a specific process known as attestation. In Canada, the attestation process is more commonly referred to as the document authentication and legalization process. To attest documents with the Embassy of Qatar you will first need to have these documents authenticated with Global Affairs Canada in Ottawa. Once your documents have been authenticated they can be submitted to the Embassy of Qatar, along with required supporting documents (where applicable). The types of supporting documents that you will be required to submit depend on the type of documents you are attesting. There are additional, strict requirements for some types of documents such as university diplomas.

The Embassy of Qatar typically takes 5 business days on average to attest (legalize) documents, assuming that all is in order when they are submitted. If your documents are not prepared correctly when you submit them, the process will be delayed. In addition, if necessary supporting documents have not been submitted or have not yet arrived, the attestation of your documents will be delayed.
For example, if you need to attest an educational document for use in Qatar, you will first have to arrange for official transcripts and a special true copy form to be sent from your educational institution directly to the embassy.
Note that all documents for legalization will first need to be authenticated by Global Affairs Canada before the Embassy of Qatar will attest them.

If you have previously lived in Qatar, you may be asked to obtain a Qatar Police Clearance Certificate. You can apply yourself in Qatar, use a representative in Qatar to apply on your behalf, or you may apply through the Embassy of Qatar in Ottawa.
Police Clearance Certificate requirements (application through the Qatar Embassy)
To apply for a Police Clearance Certificate from the Embassy of Qatar in Ottawa you are required to provide a number of supporting documents:
A cover letter stating your request and the purpose
A copy of the passport used in Qatar
A copy of your old or expired residence visa in Qatar
A copy of your current passport
A copy of your current valid residence permit/citizenship in Canada (PRC, Work Permit, etc)
A fingerprint form (C-216C) which may be obtained at a police station (notarized, authenticated and legalized) – if you had a Qatar Residency Permit after the year 2012, you are exempt from submitting a Canadian Fingerprint form
Four passport size photographs (size: 4.8cm x 3.8cm)
If you have a contact in Qatar, you may wish to have them submit your application on your behalf. Applying in Qatar rather than at the embassy in Ottawa may save you weeks of processing time. Should you go that route, you will likely need a Power of Attorney that your contact can provide to the appropriate authority. The Power of Attorney would also need to be notarized, authenticated and legalized along with your fingerprint form.
We would be happy to assist you with your Police Clearance Certificate application. If you have further questions about the application process, feel free to contact our friendly staff.
To attest your university degree at the Embassy of Qatar we will need to submit your original degree, and an original set of transcripts from the university.

In addition to the documents that we submit on your behalf, the Embassy requires that an official set of transcripts and a form they call a “True Copy Certificate” be sent directly from your university to the embassy.
The following is the address where your official transcripts and True Copy Certificate need to be sent:
Embassy of Qatar
150 Metcalfe St., Suite 800
