Sample Letter to Saudi Embassy for Degree Attestation

sample letter to saudi embassy from saudi sponsor

If you require Degree attestation in your home country by Saudi Embassy / Consulate, you will be asked for a Letter from your Sponsor – Employer in Saudi Arabia To Saudi Embassy – Consulate in your home country. Normally the contents of this letter are… You are an employee working with the employer and employer has no objection if Saudi Consulate attest your documents. However the letter is written in Arabic language as the official language for communication with Saudi Embassy is Arabic. Also the letter must be attested by Chamber of Commerce in Saudi Arabia to make sure the official signature and stamp is real and not fake.

Mostly expat employee don’t know how to explain their sponsor to issue such a letter for Saudi Embassy and when they request such a letter, even employers don’t have any idea, what the employee is actually looking for.

Upon so many requests, I am presenting a sample letter that an employee can copy and ask his / her sponsor to issue him such a letter. Please note that it is a sample letter and you need to change its contents to match the original content as per your bio-data. For instance the following details.

  • Line 1: Issue No / Serial No (This would be an auto-generated number that a a company keeps for its records, this is not mandatory).
  • Line 2 and 3: Issue Date in Gregorian and Hijri Calendar.
  • Line 5: Location of Embassy – Consulate (City + Country).
  • Line 8: Name of Employee as written on Iqama + Nationality of employee.
  • Line 16: Name of your sponsor / employer + his signature.
  • Ending: Employer / Sponsor’s official stamp (Must be attested by Chamber of Commerce).

    • You should get a person with you who is having strong communication skills in Arabic. Then try to convince Istikdam office that your degree is related with your profession.

    Thanks for sharing sample letter to Saudi embassy. Please can you share us a letter to Saudi Cultural Office (Pakistan)? will it be in English or Arabic? you can send it to me on “”. Because i asked one agent in Pakistan for attestation of my documents he asked me for 2 letter from my company in Saudi. One is for embassy and one is for Saudi Cultural Office. .

    One more question is that that letter should be attested by Chamber of Commerce and as well as Foreign office in Saudi Arabia? or is it enough to attest by only Chamber of Commerce ?. waiting for your kind reply.
