Hi abhishek_1883,

that depends on the laws in your country and who will issue certified copies in the format that ACS wants (Text must be in English or translated and . The appropriate certifying authorities vary from country to country (see examples). In Australia, certified copies from a police officer, justice of peace or pharmacist are perfectly fine. A notary always works but it's usually the most expensive option.

Note that the certification text must be in English or a translation. You can find details on the format in the ACS Skills Assessment Guidelines on page 7.

Cheers,
Monika

In India you have to get it attested by public notary. Please make sure it is stamped with "Valid Outside India" words. Notary Seal, Notary name, address, registration number, term expiry and date of attestation are must.

If you are Delhi, you can get it done at Nehru Place.

good luck, apkash

Hi Apkash,

Is it required to have the stamp with "Valid outside India"?

Also, I've one more doubt. In the "Skills-Assessment-Guidelines-for-Applicants" PDF document, it is mentioned that "The words 'Certified True Copy of the Original' is required on each page of your certified copy". My copies have the stamp "True Copy". Is it fine, or should the words be exactly same?

Appreciate your help!

Thanks,
Ankit

Ankit, i strongly believe, "True copy" is fine enough to support your documentation. No need to panic about it. just relax.

It is not mandatory to have "Valid outside India" stamping. I got my ACS approved without that. so dont worry bout that :thumb:

And coming to "True copy"... yes, that would suffice.
