Default MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE

Hi we are coming from Canada to Dubai ,but are stuck with the attestatin of our marriage certificate.the marriage took place in Pakistan , now i called the pak embassy here in Toronto but were told that they dont attest the certificate, i am in Canada for the last 15 yrs no family back home ,cant post the document as they might get lost in the ministry or in the mail.Do we need to have our certificate attested for the family visa.Please share your thoughts as we badly need it.
Thanks in advance

Sorry, but you do need it attested in order to prove that you are married. If you don't trust the postal service, then I am afraid you will have to take a trip to Pakistan...

Well, yeah, but he/she said, "it might get lost in the ministry". You know Pakistan, can you offer any reassurance?

Blimey, I don't know! However, if I were you, I would tell my husband that you have to go back to Mexico to get it attested!

Hey, why get a residence visa if it means a free jolly every 2 months..... Go somewhere nice each time - the Maldives, Rio, Havana...... Spend a shit load on his credit cards each time. Wait'n'see how quick that residence visa conjures itself up...

But what if we got married in the country where there is no UAE embassy (just did not bother to open an embassy so far)...Does anyone know where to attest the marriage certificate? Or where to call in UAE to find out what to do? Thanks for any info...
