Question about work visa

Postby ErinUS » Wed, 16 Dec 2015 11:34 am

Did anyone have a university diploma written in Latin? If so, did you provide a translation of the diploma when you applied for your work pass visa?

It needs to be in English... get a translation from an approved source... perhaps the Roman Curia??? :)

Realistically, I'd also forward official transcripts to back up the piece of paper.

I graduated from Rice. My diploma is on a very large piece of real sheepskin. Rice offers "mini diplomas" and that is what I submitted... what a hassle... they wondered why my diploma was so small... the official transcripts helped solve the problem... plus a picture of the "real" diploma.

My diploma was in Latin as well but anticipating English would be needed, I requested a "certificate of graduation" in English which I keep with my records. I used that for my EP application docs.
