Why do we need a degree attestation?

Expats require a degree attestation for the following reasons:

  • Stamp a Saudi Work Visa on the passport.
  • Change the Iqama profession.
  • Apply for a Permanent Family Visa.
  • Apply for a professional membership such as SOCPA or the Saudi Council of Engineers.

Keep in mind that without professional membership, professionals cannot renew their Iqama. As a result, confirmation of a degree is required to renew Iqama.

Which Saudi Embassy?

You must transmit your degrees to the Saudi Culture and Saudi Embassy of the same country that gave the degree, regardless of nationality.

A Pakistani national, for example, earned an ACCA degree from a UK university. For attestation, he must send it to the Saudi Culture and Saudi Embassy in the United Kingdom. The Saudi Embassy in Pakistan would not vouch for a foreign-issued degree.

Required Documents

For degree authentication, the following documents must be provided to both the Saudi Culture and the Saudi Embassy:

  • A request letter to Saudi Embassy for Degree attestation.
  • A request letter to Saudi Culture for Degree attestation.
  • Iqama copy (if applicable).
  • Saudi Visa copy.
  • Passport copy.
  • The original degree certificate.

Attestation process

To a friend, family member, or an agency in your nation, send all of the aforementioned requirements. He’ll be forced to;

  • Attest the degree from Education Commission. 
  • Attest the degree from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of that country.
  • Send the degree to Saudi Culture.
  • Obtain a Saudi Culture-accredited degree.
  • Send the diploma to the Saudi Embassy.
  • The Saudi Embassy will certify your degree.
  • Saudi Arabian degrees and certificates do not require any type of authentication from the Saudi Embassy or Saudi culture.

Distance Education Degree Attestation

Many persons who have earned degrees through distant education, such as IGNOU and AIOU, wish to know if their degrees are recognized by the Saudi Embassy. Is it acceptable in Saudi Arabia to use them?

In general, unless the institution or institute is well-known, the Saudi Embassy and Saudi culture will not accept a distant education degree.

Despite being remote education, the Saudi Embassy accepts the degrees given by Allama Iqbal Open University, IGNOU, and ACCCA.
