If you’re pursuing employment overseas, you may find yourself needing to legally authenticate certain documents to obtain a work permit. Such documents may include:

  • educational certificates or degrees
  • certifications (i.e. medical boards, training completions, etc.)
  • marriage license (if applicable)
  • certificates of good standing

These documents can be attested/apostilled by the state department or governing body of the country that has issued your degree. The purpose for attestation is to:

  • obtain an employment visa / labor card
  • pursue higher education in a foreign country
  • to get the equivalent certificates
  • for doctors, nurses, pharmacists, laboratory technicians, etc. to take any examinations as may be required by the issuing Authority and DOH (Dept.of Health)
Below you will find reference links as to where and how to have your documents legally authenticated.
