Attestation Services

Now you can get important documents attested through Leopards Courier Attestation services. Our service is convenient and hassle free; important documents listed below can be attested without you ever having to visit MOFA. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs Pakistan (MOFA) is responsible for the attestation for the legality and authenticity of documents (list mentioned below) required legal.


Consular Affairs

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Islamabad and all its Camp Offices at Peshawar, Lahore, Karachi and Quetta do not attest either the contents or the genuineness of the document. They only countersigns the attestation made by other authorities like the educational certificates which have to be attested by IBCC and Higher Education Commission etc. The Ministry, thus, verifies the signatures of concerned attesting authorities. These documents include:

  • Documents issued by various authorities of central, provincial and local government which are intended to be used abroad or submitted in Foreign Missions in Pakistan;
  • Documents verified/attested by our Foreign Missions which are intended to be presented  in Pakistan

Further, the Ministry only attests documents in Urdu and English versions. Document or its translation in any other language other than English is not attested. Applicants may get their attested documents translated from the Translation Centres, approved by the concerned diplomatic Mission, in Islamabad and submit directly to the Embassies.
Documents once attested, will remain valid forever and hence will not be re-attested.
Attestation made by the Camp Offices of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs at Lahore, Quetta, Peshawar, Karachi has the same weightage and authenticity as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Islamabad and hence, will not be re-attested.
Photocopy or translation of any document will be attested when original document is presented or it is attested by a gazetted officer of BPS-17 or above.
