<>Death Certificate Attestation In Qatar
Why You Need A Death Certificate?
A death certificate is a legal document that describes important details of the deceased such as date and time of death, location, cause, etc. As with every other document, this is extremely important as it is a legal document that mentions vital information.
Making Death Certificate Legal
Although the certificate in your hands is original, when it is taken to another country, this is where the document has to be proved its legal status. This is done by the attestation procedure. So, what is an attestation process?
Well, it is simply a procedure in which the document is verified by the officials to ensure its authenticity. Once the document is finished verifying, it is signed and sealed by the concerned authorities and it is made valid to use in a foreign country. Although the attestation procedure can be done by ourselves by applying, as it takes a lot of time and more importantly, if you are a fresher in these matters, the process can get complex.
This is why it is better to opt for the services of a professional agency that performs death certificate attestation procedure. These companies have considerable experience and knowledge in performing attestation for different types of documents such as educational, non-educational and commercial documents.
Before attesting the death certificate, there are some documents that need to be submitted in order to make the attestation process smoother without any problems. These are the documents that must be used:
- The original certificate
- Passport copy of the deceased
- Passport size photos of the individual
Attesting death certificates is a long process and involves verification that is done by different departments.It is always better to approach the services of certificate attestation companies to be on the safe side.Here we explain the steps involved in the verification and attestation of the death certificate.
Getting the document attested by a legalized Notarization is the first step. The notarization requirements will vary depending on the type of document. Before doing notarization they will check whether he/she possesses a criminal background, certified true copies of documents, etc. Once the certificate is verified, it is then sent to the state home department for second stage verification.
STATE HOME DEPARTMENT
Getting attestation from the state home department or SDM is the second step in attestation. Just like the Notary attestation, SDM checks whether your document is authentic and not fabricated. Another highlight about this attestation procedure is that without the SDM attesting your documents, it will not be passed to the next stage verification which is done by the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA). The original death certificate and a passport copy must be given for the verification process. It takes about 2 to 3 days to complete verifying and signing the document.
MINISTRY OF EXTERNAL AFFAIRS ATTESTATION
This department is responsible for the third round of attestation. In order to get your document attested by the MEA, it must be successfully verified by the relevant state authority. To use the documents or certificates within India and foreign countries, the document or certificate should undergo the process of MEA attestation. Although the MEA legalizes the document on the basis of the signature and seal of the designated authorities, it does not bear the responsibility of the contents of the documents.
This is the final step in the attestation procedure of the document. Only after completing attestation from all other departments mentioned above one can go before Embassy for attestation. This should be done from the Home country of the certificate holder.
