How to Attest Degree Certificate in Dubai

Attested highest education certificate or degree certificate is a requirement when processing your employment visa in Dubai. This apply mostly to professionals and managerial post. Depending on your position, the company who employs you will ask for this document when it is time to process your visa. You may want to ask them whether they need it or not because there are some position that does not require to have it although it is always better to keep it handy for future use and reference.

Attestation happens first in your home country or in the country where you graduated. It must be certified by the school, notarized by a public notary, then attested by the Ministry of Foreign affairs before the UAE Embassy in your place.

When you arrived to Dubai, the certificate must go to the Dubai Ministry of Foreign Affairs for attestation before it can be acknowledge by the immigration as an official document.

MoFA is in embassies area, at the corner of Khalid Bin Walid Road and Al Seef Road. You can alight from BurJuman Metro Station and walk but I do not recommend this during summer between May to August.

The entrance is behind the building, there is a security check, for ladies it is advisable to wear pants or if you are to wear a dress or skirt it must go below your knee. It is not allowed to use the phone so keep it silent or just leave it in the car.

After the security check, there is a counter where you will show your document and the personnel or the police will tell you how much you have to pay. It is AED 150 for this type of document (this might be subject to change without further notice)

Go to the cashier and pay, you will also have to add AED 10 for the e-dirham card and keep it for future use as it is re-loadable. Always check the expiry date of the card. This card can also be used in other government office in the UAE who accepts e-dirham payments.

Go back to the counter and get your token, or you might be given a token first before paying. Enter the attestation room and sit in the designated seat for men or women. When your token it called, go the counter and hand over your document, receipt and e-dirham card. It should be done in about in less than 10 minutes. It is not allowed to use mobile phones inside the premises.

The staff are very professional and helpful at MoFA so keep calm.

How to Apply for Children's Residence Visa Under Mother Sponsorship in Dubai 2019

Dubai, 29/09/2019 For expatriate married women living and working in Dubai especially those earning less than 10,000 dirhams salary per month and whose job description is not allowed to apply for visas for their family, sponsoring their children has never been easy until the recent changes in Dubai immigration rules that took effect mid of 2019 this year. The rule now allows any UAE resident (those who have a valid employment visa) male or  FEMALE can now sponsor family members provided that he or she earns a monthly salary of AED 4000 or AED 3000 plus accommodation according to the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship. Back in the day, when I tried to sponsor my husband, my experience was completely different. You can read about it  here . Just this month, a friend of mine applied for her children's visa in Dubai. It was approved, and the visa was issued and stamped on her children's passports. We shared below the documents required and the step-by-step

Sinampalukang Isda (Tilapia/Sea Bream) Pang-alis Umay!

 After Christmas and New Year holidays, do you feel you've had enough of the leftovers? I feel the same way. I needed something to break away from it. The first craving I had was a very Pinoy fish dish.  Sinampalukang isda. Some would think of it as sinigang but it is not sinigang. It is a soup dish of fish in tamarind broth, ginger, chilis, onions, tomatoes, radish leaves or pechay, and of course fish. Okay, it is like sinigang (hahaha). It usually calls for tilapia but I opted for sea bream. It is a completely hearty meal. Of course, to be eaten with hot steaming rice and sawsawan (a mixture of fish sauce and green chili) The original dish calls for fresh raw tamarind but since it is hardly available where I am, I used powdered tamarind. The difference is that fresh raw tamarind gives this dish a thick broth distinct from sinampalukang isda my parents used to cook for us, unlike powdered tamarind. (oh well ex-pat life) So, how to cook it? Ingredients (serves 2) 1 medium-size sea
