Educational Documents

As a fraud reduction strategy, all education documents must be certified by the central Student Administration office of the issuing institution as a 'true and accurate record' before the document can be authenticated by an Australian diplomatic/consular mission. In the event that the relevant institution does not provide this service, the document must be notarised by an Australian Notary Public.
Only after this certification has been received, may the Australian Diplomatic/Consular mission authenticate a tertiary education document. You should ensure that the Student Administration Officer or Australian Notary Public has their signature recorded on the dfat signatures database, before an Australian Diplomatic/Consular mission can authenticate the document.
