You’ll need attestation on a lot of documents if you’re moving abroad for a job, especially if you’re moving with your family. For example, a certificate of graduation, post-graduation, or diploma, a marriage and birth certificate, a child’s school transfer certificate, a previous year’s class graduation certificate, a work experience certificate, and so on. As a result, attestation is needed to prove the authenticity of a text.

A number of authentications will be performed on the text. The following is a list of the general measures involved:

  • Notarization in the country of origin
  • Attestation from the local district/state department
  • Attestation from the Ministry of Education
  • The home country’s Foreign Affairs Ministry
