Immigration documents must be written in the native language of the country to which you are relocating. If they are not, you are required to have them translated and certified for authenticity and accuracy. Certified translations need to be performed by a professional translator who is knowledgeable in providing precise and complete translations and who can certify their work per the sponsoring embassy or consulate’s requirements. The immigration vendor who is assisting you in the immigration process will be able to guide you in procuring a professional translator.
The original documents you may be asked to provide which may need to be translated, include your birth certificate, marriage certificate or divorce papers, academic transcripts, police records, and bank statements. You are encouraged to carefully review any and all language translation instructions pertaining to your immigration application or petition. It is critical that the language translation meets the host country’s specifications. Providing no translation or incorrect translation will result in processing delays.
