Attestations, Legalisations and Notorisations
Legalisation (or Attestation as it is commonly known) is the process of authenticating a document to the required level so that another country will be happy to accept them as genuine. Notorisation is the attestation, by a Notary Public, of the authenticity of a signature on a document.
PRIME can arrange such attestations with the Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MOIC), the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI), Ministry of Foreign Affairs, embassies and other ministries such as the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Education and so on. We can also arrange notorisations with the Notary Public’s office.
We are also excited to announce the appointment of PRIME’s very own Partner, Mr. Hatim Q. Zu’bi (also a Partner at Zu’bi & Partners, Attorney’s and Legal Consultants), as a Notary Public permitted to provide Private Notarial services (English Language) by the Bahrain Ministry of Justice & Islamic Affairs pursuant to Ministerial Order (23) of 2018 with Respect to the Appointment of Private Notaries. A full list of the documents he is able to notarize in the English Language, pursuant to Ministerial Order (78) of 2017, is listed in the attached Order.
