UK changes documents legalisation process for British nationals in UAE
Instead, they have to send those documents to the UK legalisation Office in Milton Keynes and to the UAE embassy in London by courier or through specialised companies providing this service, an official spokesperson of the British embassy in Dubai told Gulf News on Thursday. British citizens used to get a UK public document legalised at the British embassies in the UAE. This means a signature, seal or stamp made by a UK public official on the document is confirmed as genuine by the UK government. We are introducing important changes to how we deliver notarial and documentary services. These changes will result in a more streamlined service of the legalisation process which will allow staff to spend more time helping the most vulnerable people and the most serious cases, a statement issued on Thursday by the British embassy in Dubai said. It said the changes are part of the new Consular Strategy 2013-2016 of UK FCO (Foreign and Commonwealth office), which aims to achieving consular excellence. The strategy says: By 2016 our processes will be more efficient and staff will spend more time helping the most vulnerable people and the most serious cases. Our services will always be of high quality, but we may vary the level of service across the network according to local circumstances. Customers will have more choice in how they access our services. We will be able to respond to changing needs and to react to crisis situations effectively. Unlike most consular services, the British embassies and consulates in 146 countries are not responsible for visas, which are the responsibility of the UK Border Agency (UKBA). Our office is now contacting every legalisation customer on our records and within our reach to explain the legalisation process and we will also advertise this on our website, Facebook, and Twitter, the embassy statement said. For customers who have any questions, they can contact the embassy on +971 43094444 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
