Degree - True copy stamp sufficent?

Recommended Posts

I have to have my documents stamped to get a teacher's license.

Is a true copy stamp by embassy sufficient? Or does it need to say "legalized "?

The embassy only offered a true copy stamp.

And do degree and transcripts need to be stamped or just transcripts is sufficient (as they anyway go together.)

Asking the latter cos if I need it send back home it will cost me about 17000 Baht for two documents to be legalized.

Anyone with first hand experience?

Do you have your original degree, or only a photocopy of it ? Do your transcripts have an embossed seal of the issuing university ? If you answered "yes" and" yes", you will probably be OK with whatever document of verification your embassy has offered. Have your original documents with you at every step of the process, in case some official wants to examine them.  Also have contact information for your university with you, in case they want to verify by e-mail, telephone or mail.

Note to anyone reading this who is British:  Your embassy will not do this for you. It has to be done in Britain.

A "true copy" with the stamp of your embassy is usually enough to apply for a TL. 

 

  They don't stamp your original degree and transcripts, only on copies of it.

 

  I had to study for an additional Diploma which came in a sealed envelope addressed to the TCT Bangkok.

 

 They might ask you to have a sealed letter sent from your university directly to the TCT in Bangkok.

A university president is often a notary in the US, so your stamped diploma is already notarized.  Thailand is not a member of the Apostille Convention, which would simply verify that the signature on your diploma is a valid notary...
