Q: Degree certification or...

whatever it's called.  haha, Does anyone really know?  I've heard 'apostilled', but it seems the 'expert' to help with getting RP & FEC at my school doesn't know shit from shinola.

So, has anyone gone back to their home-country and had this done?  Tell a bit about it please.  

 

I first came to China in 2006.

 

I got my degree 30 years ago.  haha

I know a company here in Shanghai that does it. I also no a company in the USA that does it. There is also another company that can do it here online. You do not have to go back home. I had my background check authenticated recently by the company in Shanghai. The company in DC was cheaper and the did my degree.

Hi Man

 

First, it's definitely not called an Apostilled, China isn't apart of their group. 

 

Its authentication by the embassy.

 

How to do it is straight forward:

 

A. Go to your university, best with your degree and get a certified letter that your degree is real and that you were a real student there. 

 

B. Go to your state department and get that certified university letter "notarized" 

 

C. Go to your nearest China embassy and must be in your country or where ever you got your degree from and get them to put the square sticker with a round hologram at the bottom. 

 

Than you are set!

 

Here is the picture of what it will look like. Same as mine:

"First, it's definitely not called an Apostilled, China isn't apart of their group" Niether is Canada. The United States and Australia are. Interestingly; even though China is not a signatory, Hong Kong and Macao are. I think someone used this term to make us think that they know something we don't. So now I am wondering if Canadians must get their documents certified twice?

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
