Default Ministry of Foreign Affairs - degree certificate attestation

Hi all,
My degree certificate has arrived in Dubai, attested by all relevant parties in the UK. I believe the final stage is to get the Ministry of Foreign Affairs here to stamp it.
Does anyone know if I need to go in person to do this, and whether you need an appointment or just turn up?
Typically, how long does it take?
Many thanks

You can send someone to do it for you. They open 8am-1pm if I recall. No appointment needed, though best to get there early...

Thanks m1key.

If I send someone to do it for me, does it need to be an attesting agency or can I send the HR person from my employer's sister company? She seems to think I either need to go in person or send an attesting agency.

Is it the place in the marina mall?

I was in same situation, and had my companies PRO (HR person/public relations officer) handle the situation, I didn't go in person. Would recommend you make a complete photocopy though of the degree along with all the attestations, just to be safe..

As Saraswat said. We've sent a driver before. Just make sure it is someone you trust not to lose it!
