Translation of documents

If your international qualification documents are not in English, you must provide a translation of them.

All translations must comply with the following requirements:

  • Translations must be prepared by a recognised official translation service. The translation must not be prepared by you, or any member of your family, or any person interested in the outcome of your application.
  • Translations must be on official letterhead and have the stamp or signature of the translator or translation service.
  • All translation costs are your responsibility.
  • All translations of original language documents, including notarised documents, must be certified as correct by an official of the translation service.
