Birth Certificate Qatar Attestation

Should you be moving to Qatar from South Africa and have children you will need to get their Birth Certificates Attested at the Qatar Embassy in Pretoria in order for them to be sponsored by the primary sponsor (the person getting the job). The Qatar Embassy charges R180 per page (subject to change). Typically there will be about 5 pages that will be attested. 

The Qatar Birth Certificate Attestation document process is as follows:

Original- Notary Attorney (Copy is stamped)- High Court- DIRCO (Foreign Affairs)- Qatar Embassy Pretoria

There are a few South African birth certificate variations. However, due to the new travel laws all Minors travelling to South Africa or leaving South Africa require an Unabridged Birth Certificate in addition to their passports (regardless of Nationality). Therefore we recommend that you get an unabridged birth certificate. 

In terms of the Unabridged Birth Certificate applications, these need to made at a Home Affairs Department or at a South African Embassy if you are abroad. The turnaround time varies and is inconsistent from 2 weeks to 8 months. 

We offer a Birth Certificate Attestation for Qatar and offer discounts for families who attest several documents.
