Red ribbon (authentication) of documents is now outdated as the Philippines joined last 2018 the
Hague Apostille countries´membership. Expired document is no good especially when it comes to migration requirements for employment. As long as you have your Transcript of Records from the registrar of your university you should proceed or any relative could to the DFA in Manila to have the apostille on your transcript or your college diploma. You can go to the Philippine Embassy in Riyadh and obtain a Power of Attorney for any relative in the Philippines to do the transaction for you!
Good luck!

Dont shoot me if I'm wrong,. The Aposille must be done in the country of origin. IE If your docs originated in Saudi so then should they be Apossiled in Saudi. As i can see that Saudie is NOT a Haugue Convention member then you would get them Red Ribboned at the Philippines Consulate/ Embassy in Saudie.

As we dont know the nature of what you're desiring to do, best you follow the requirements of the country you are trying to satsify.

Ok let´s elaborate further. The Philippines is now a member of Hague Apostille Convention. Saudi Arabia is NOT. If the university Transcript of Records and Diploma are to be used in Saudi Arabia he should take the ff steps:

1. Bring the said documents (Diploma and Transcript) to the Dept of Foreign Affairs to receive the apostille.

2. After the apostille is done, the document should be brought to the Saudi Embassy to be legalized or authenticated.

Only then can they be used in Saudi Arabia.

It's a can of worms...

1. What is an Apostille and when do I need one?

An Apostille is a certificate that authenticates the origin of a public document. It is issued by a country that is party to the Apostille Convention to be used in another country which is also a party to the Convention.

3. In which countries does the Apostille Convention apply?

The Apostille Convention only applies if both the country where the public document was issued and the country where the public document is to be used are parties to the Convention. For the updated list of all "Apostille Countries," please visit this link: https://www.hcch.net/en/instruments/con … le/?cid=41


4. What do I do if the country where I need to use my public document is not an Apostille Country?

By 14 May 2019, DFA-OCA will issue Apostille Certificates to all documents submitted for authentication. If your public document is to be used in a country where the Apostille Convention does not apply, you should contact the Embassy or Consulate of the country where you intend to use the document in order to find out what your options are. This usually means that you need to present your documents to the said country's Embassy or Consulate in the Philippines for its authentication/legalization.

In short, you need to take your docs to the Saudi Embassy/Consulate in The Philippines and ask them what you need to do..
