How to authenticate University Degrees for use in Qatar

Martin Astle, Notary at Astle Paterson confirmed “With immediate effect, all qualification certificates including University Degrees issued outside of the State of Qatar, which require consulate attestation for use in Qatar must be supported by a Certificate/Diploma supported by a transcript and a covering letter from the educational provider confirming the certificate’s authenticity, the place, mode and type of study, where the examination was held, the awarded title of the qualification, the duration of the course and the start and end date of the course.”

Martin continued “In addition any qualification obtained via distance learning or an online program will not be accepted.”

At Astle Paterson we have two Notaries, Martin Astle and Jean Paterson.  Should you need any documents to be notarised for use abroad, we will arrange for the documents to be certified in line with the procedure required for the destination Country.

If required, we can arrange for any documents to be couriered and legalised by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office who will attach an Apostille to the document and return it to us for its immediate return to you.
