An apostille is a certification that authenticates documents for use in countries that are members of the Hague Convention. An apostille certifies the origin of a public document so it can be recognized internationally.

Abu Dhabi and the UAE are not part of the Hague Apostille Convention. Documents issued in the UAE that need to be used abroad require embassy legalization, not apostilles..
