Certificate Attestation / Apostille – Ethiopia

Ethiopia is one of the most populous landlocked nations in the world. This country is the place of origin of coffee beans and has the largest number of UNESCO World Heritage sites in the whole of Africa. Addis Ababa is the capital city and the seat of federal government in Ethiopia. People planning to move abroad from this country need to undergo the process of document attestation. It is a multistep procedure that should be followed to ensure faster completion. If you are looking for these services offered by the experts, you’re at the right place. BVS Global has years of experience in this field with a specialization in attestation services.

The Process of Attestation in Ethiopia:

When applying for an employment, education, commercial, or residency visa in a country, you need authentication, certification, and legalization of your documents. The process of authentication also includes Embassy or Consulate legalization depending on the jurisdiction of the documents. The requirements, jurisdiction, and fee structure for this complete process may be revised or changed by the embassy officials at any time. Basically, the process includes following steps:

  • Legal translation if needed.
  • Notarization or state certification as required in Ethiopia.
  • Attestation from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Ethiopia.
  • Finally, attestation from the Embassy or consulate office in Ethiopia.

You should submit the original copies of your educational, commercial, and personal documents for complete attestation within the stipulated timelines.

Why You Need It

When a document is attested, it eliminates all worries regarding the genuineness of the documentation and eases the process of your international endeavor. Such authentication is a legal necessity for all cross-border undertakings involving personal or career-related advancements:

  • Embassies or consulates for visa or passport issuance
  • Immigration office in case of visa application, emigration request or work status change etc.
  • World education services (WES) and International qualifications assessment (IQAS) verification
  • Equivalency requirements for Ministry of Education (MOE) or Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MOHESR)
