I had been asked by the employer to send them my original higher degree (attested from UAE embassy in my country) via courier to process my employment visa (work permit), So I did.

I am asking so I can be sure that at which step it is needed? Because they used to take only scanned copies of documents in the past but now they have started this?

Also, how much time it would take to process because I received an email from the employer that "We have started your degree attestation and visa process already" on 6th January.

Hi Rafa.

It usually takes 2-3 weeks and sometimes less. Depends on the company it self. It should be done by this week hopefully.

Good Luck with your new Work. Wish you the best.

The company is reputable and keeps on calling people from abroad. And does the hard copy of degree has anything to do with this? Since back in days people used to send only scanned copies. Even i had attested that from embassy in my country
