Education Certificates

Choose this service to legalise an Education Document for Saudi Arabia. The time taken to legalise these documents will vary due to the necessity of taking the documents to the Saudi Arabian Cultural Bureau (keep reading below).

Degree certificates and other educational documents require a specific process for attestation.

Firstly, you must pass the document(s) to the Saudi Arabian Cultural Bureau in London (SACB) BEFORE they can be sent to the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) to be apostilled. Due to the Data Protection Act, the SACB do not allow third parties to submit documents on the holder's behalf. The Cultural Bureau will attempt to make contact with the issuer of your educational document to validate it's authenticity. To speed up the time taken to attest your qualification, we recommend contacting the registrar who issued your document and asking them to respond quickly.

Once you have have your SACB-verified documents, you can then send them to Vital Consular (along with the original copy of the document and a copy of your passport) where we will have it certified by a solicitor and sent to the FCDO for an Apostille on your behalf.

Due to the above process, the time taken to attest an educational qualification will vary. It is not uncommon for this to take several months, so please allow sufficient time to process your attestation application.

Please note: We are unable to assist with the SACB process and cannot answer any questions about your application with them. We can only fulfill the steps regarding the FCDO.
