Degree Attestation

Hi,
I got Visa slip from my company in saudi Arabia as a computer programer . I have done BCA and ADCA from IGNOU. I attested my degree from Delhi HRD and EMEA. But saudi Cultural refuse to accpt it because of distance learning.
Please let me know what is the solution for this issue. Because my company in saudi arabia do not have issue with my study.

AmitSharma.82 inform them clearly stating that its not a private institute public university, or better give to any agency they will get your certificate authenticated.

@ AmitSharma.82 get a letter from IGNOU University letter towards saudi Cultural and better try to look for one who can translate in Arabic before you give to saudi Cultural( submit English & Arabic).

No Idea about the rules go directly and talk face to face. And mention clearly this is Government university. Sometimes it happens but you try it will work for sure.

Degree Attestation:

I am currently in Saudi Arabia as an Engineer and for various reasons I need to get my degree attested from Saudi Cultural Office and Saudi Embassy in New Delhi. And to get these attestations I need a few stamps from Indian authorities like HRD (Ministry of External Affairs) and General Admin Dept. (some State Level Authority)

I want to know if I can get all these attestation here in Saudi Arabia from MoFA(KSA) and the Indian Embassy in Riyadh.

I know for sure that it will be attested by the Indian Embassy but not sure whether it will be accepted by MoFA for attestation.
Please help me out.

Dear abdul1433

Degree attestation is compulsory for all.
I am also INDIAN and selected in Samama company of saudi arabia.
and I am waiting for visa, i was also suffering these kind of problem,
so, now please read the procedure carefully and go through step by step.

all these procedure will complete in India
1) HRD attestation from your state means degree must issued from same state for example, if your degree is issue from Madhya pradesh state, u have to do HRD from Madhya pradesh govt.
http://www.mea.gov.in/mystart.php?id=8801
check this website
Note : HRD attestation will be done By You or your relative,
and remain 3 attestation will be done by agencies
I wrote this note becoz saudi cultural will never ever accepted the degree by individual Check this

2).  MEA delhi,
3). Saudi Cultural delhi and
4). Saudi Embassy delhi.

Please feel free to ask any question. . . ...

Re: Degree Attestation

Try with your agent, may be he can take some money and manage your visa without degrees. Unfortunately, but fortunately for you that it works.
if you degree are genuine than go ahead with this.

Re: Degree Attestation

To my knowledge, here is the process:

1. Your agent will have to send your degree to the respective university who awarded it to you.

2. Your university will attest it and verify it

3. You will then send it to the HRD ministry or your state secretariate.

4. They will have to put their seal on it

5. There is a process of notary that needs to be done and notary RED colour seal to be pasted on the degree.

6. After all these are complete, send it to Saudi Cultural or Saudi Embassy (who ever is the right authority).

There is a chance of refusal from Embassy if any of the above is missing.

This should cost you anywhere between 5k INR to 12kINR depending on the speed you want and the quality and knowledge of the agent.

Google an agent called Indo-arab; I got my degrees attested from there and he did it within a month.

Good luck to you all
