The new rule will take effect from February 4, 2018. The certificate must be Notarized and Attested prior to submitting the work or resident permit application. The legalized certificate then should be attested by the UAE Embassy in the home country or country of residence (Attestation).

This process will only be applicable for the visa for the employee concerned and not his/her dependents. Those coming to the country on visit or tourist visas need not obtain these certificates.
