Translations for Student Visa Applications
What does the translation need to show?
If a document required to support your visa application is not in English or Welsh, you must also provide a fully certified translation from a professional translator or translation company that can be independently verified by the Home Office. The translation must include all of the following information:
• confirmation that it is an accurate translation of the document
• the date of translation
• the full name and signature of the translator or an official from the translation company
• the translator or translation company’s contact details
We recommend that you make and keep copies of all documents and forms that you have translated into English.
What type of documents might need translating?
The types of documents that often need translating to support VISA applications are:
• Qualifications e.g. certificates and transcripts
• Birth certificates
• Marriage certificates
• Bank statements
Please remember that this list is not exhaustive and other types of documents may require translation.
