We are proud that seekteachers.com have chosen SA Travelbug as their South African document attesting partner. We have offered this service to our Client’s for over 12years, as it is normal for overseas employers to require that you have your Marriage/Birth Certificates, Degrees/Tertiary qualifications legalized by their Embassy, when you make your application for employment.
Generally for certificates to be attested you need to submit your Certificates to the High Court, Relevant Department governing your profession, then the Relevant Department of Foreign Affairs / Embassy and then when notified collect your Attested Certificates.
There are subtle differences in the steps to be followed for each type of certificate and for each profession to have their Certificates attested.
By way of example, below is the steps we would take to have a Teacher’s Certificates attested.
- Submit your Certificate to the Notary Attorney at the High Court
- Then to the Department of Higher Education
- Then the Department of Foreign Affairs / DIRCO
- Then the relevant Embassy
- Finally return your Attested Certificates to you via courier / Postnet

Please keep in mind that the UAE and Qatar Embassies in South Africa, will now only attest Qualifications/Certificates obtained in South Africa i.e. for the UAE and Qatar you need to apply for attestation in the country in which you obtained your qualification or received your certificates.
Conversely, the Embassy of Saudi Arabia in South Africa, will attest your qualifications/certificates, irrespective of which country they were issued in.
