These documents are part of your UAE Residency visa. Your attested documents are used as a seal in case you lose or forget your original documents. These attested documents are also used for permanent employment in UAE or GCC countries. Under the UAE Residency Visa, your degree/transcript attestation is mandatory for many jobs. For example, a government/public service job applicant must have an attested degree from a recognized university in UAE. Job applicants must also be having current/held employment in UAE or GCC countries. Under GCC law, if you are without a passport, school certificates, or any other document to prove you studied in UAE then you will not be issued a UAE/GCC Residency visa.

The certificate attestation in UAE is so important that I have found in my own experience that when I have sent my document to the US embassy for attestation, they almost require one of my documents for their embassy – i.e. my attested copy. Gulf nations generally accept some copies as attestation, so the local embassy in your country can help you out by helping you get the attestation done.
