Certificate Attestation South Africa
Certificate attestation in South Africa requires the original degree to be used in the document attestation process. Typically the certificate attestation, as an example a degree, needs to be taken to the relevant authority of that certificate. A degree in our example would be taken to the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET), provided it is a degree registered with them they will issue a cover page which validates the degree. This is then taken to the Department of International Relations and Co Operation (DIRCO) and then to the relevant embassy.
Certificate Attestation Process:
1. Original- Authorized institution- DIRCO- Embassy
Example Institutions and example document types:
1. Department of Higher Education and Training- Degrees, Diplomas etc.
