Just Graduated and Travelling Overseas for Work? You may need to get your degree attested for official use prior to departure.
If you’re reading this blog – Congratulations! You’ve probably just graduated or about to complete your studies here in Australia and embark on a new journey with your hard earned qualifications!
BUT WAIT – THERE’S MORE.
Failure to properly get your degree attested with the correct regulatory bodies prior to your departure could mean that your degree cannot be used for official purpose overseas!
The better option is to go through the process of degree attestation – degree notarisation, DFAT authentication and foreign embassy legalisation, before you leave Australia. Here are some points to keep in mind:
- Most traditional notaries are happy to stamp your documentation for you – but most will not have packaged services that include the whole degree attestation process.
- The degree attestation process required in correctly notarising, authenticating and legalising your degree needs to be followed precisely in order to avoid unnecessary delay and additional costs.
- There are several regulatory bodies that you need to deal with in order to get your degree properly attested, all of which have their own processes and procedures which are regularly updated – so you need to keep abreast of these changes.
- If you leave Australia before getting your degree attested, it will cost you more time and money to have them done when you are overseas.
