Wow !! what a cumbersome process to get a work permit in Dubai but I guess it pays off well with the salaries that MBAs earn in rich city like Dubai . Looks like concept of transcripts are not used which is universal I thought all these days. But most of this procedure we will not know if we apply for H1-B visa as all the degree attestations are done by employers for us with the help of their lawyers. US Consulates (say in India) have extensive shared university databases that will make it easy for them to verify and grant visas on the spot.
