Certificate Attestation / Apostille – Germany

Germany is the most populous country in the European Union and a founding member of the Union. It is also a part of Schengen Area and has a diverse culture. Berlin is the capital and the largest city in the country. If planning to move abroad, you need to follow a process of document attestation/apostille. You need to follow this process if you want to pursue higher studies or looking for a work opportunity out of this country. But, you need not worry when you have the experts of BVS Global on your side.

The Process of Apostille/ Attestation in Germany:

The public documents to be used in a member country of Hague Convention should be accompanied by an Apostille certificate affixed to their front page. This certificate endorses the authenticity of the documents and validates the signature or seal of the public officials. Using this certificate, the personal, educational, and commercial documents of foreign nationals can be attested by the government authorities. The process of Apostille typically includes the following steps:

  • Legal Translation if required by the Embassy officials.
  • Attestation from state authorities or notarization of the documents in Germany.
  • Attestation or Apostille from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Germany.
  • Final attestation from the Consulate office or Embassy in Germany.

For successful completion of this process, you should present the documents to be attested with the passport copy and other documents as required by the officials.

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)
