Hiiiii all, Very Happy

I just got my visa letter for a job in saudi however my references all are from UAE. In order to complete my process I think I need to attest my references. The saudi embassy will be checking for authenticity so I can get my visa. Where in Abu dhabi do I do that? I don't know where to go. Any help?

thank youuu
baaaa

I assume you mean the employment verification letters, which typically are used by the prospective employer to calculate salary during the preliminary job offer stage. Either way, I've never heard of these letters requiring attestation; they're completely irrelevant to the visa process. Plus, there's absolutely nothing about this on the Saudi Embassy's website in terms of documents you're required to submit.

When I arrived in KSA, I provided my uni's HR with hard, color copies of my signed employment verification letters from previous employers. Each letter was on letterhead and confirmed my employment dates, title, a brief blip about my responsibilities and was signed by a representative of the company. This may be the case for you too, Baa Baa. You should double-check this with the Saudi recruiter/HR rep before going on a wild goose chase getting documents erroneously attested.
