Hi I am a Filipino engineer. I already have my Transcript of Records and Diploma authenticated at the Department of Foreign Affairs in the Philippines (Red Ribboned). My questions is do I need my TOR and Diploma attested at Saudi Embassy back in the Philippines or the the authenticated one is enough for me to register at the Saudi Council of Engineers?

Thank you in advance!

You have to attest educational certificates at saudi embassy in your country ... then you have to upload it in saudi engineering council website to get membership..
