      The employer advised to submit attested documents within 15 days for process work visa. But he is aware of the attestation procedure and how to translate the certificate from English to Arabic. Also he went to Chennai Secretariat, Home Department office for enquire about HRD process. But he cannot get proper information about process and time duration. One of the mediator told him that Normally HRD attestation will take 15 to 25 days so he is struggling to get HRD attestation in his degree certificate in quick process.
