Legalising French Documents for Qatar

If you've got French documents which need to be attested for use in Qatar, we can help. Whether it’s a French personal document such as a birth, marriage or death, certificate, an education award, or any other type of document, we can handle the whole process.

How does it work?

Legalising French documents can be complex, since the process depends on the type of document being legalised and for which purpose. We've outlined a general process for the legalisation of French documents below, but keep in mind these may vary based on several factors. Get in touch to ensure you get the most accurate service for your circumstances.

Legalisation Notes

  • The Qatar Embassy in France won't usually legalise any documents that have already been processed by another consulate.
  • If you are legalising a birth or wedding certificate, it must be no more than 3 months old.
  • It is no longer possible to make certified copies of documents that are not in French. Anyone holding a diploma issued in France that is in another language will need to ask the concerned school to issue a certificate in French instead.
  • We are unable to obtain any certificates on your behalf.
