The UAE Embassy in New Delhi, India, recently announced that it no longer requires requests to legalize academic credentials to be accompanied by a university verification letter confirming the authenticity of the academic certificate.
The embassy began requiring verification letters in June, which led to significant delays in the legalization process.
What this Means for Employers and Individuals
The elimination of the verification letter requirement will significantly shorten the document legalization time for academic certificates issued in India. This, in turn, will reduce the overall application lead time for UAE work authorization from India.
