Q: getting australian degrees authenticated in singapore

in the midst of preparing paperwork for the work visa and one of the criteria is to get my degree authenticated in the country where it was issued. Thing is I'm a Singaporean who holds an Australian degree.

I've called to the visa centre who and their advice was to get it authenticated at the chinese consulate in Melbourne

has anyone faced such issue and know to go around this and if there's any other way to get it done?

Appreciate any help given. Thank you!

It's easy to check if an Australia degree is real. Just check the vice chancellor's signature. If his name isn't Bruce then it's a forgery.

I'm giving this answer for everyone. Do not use a local, especially Chinese, companies. Do a search in your own country and find a company in you own country. Local companies will rip you off and charge you 3X the actual cost from another company

You may be in the situation where you'll NEED to have Australian officials do what they need to do!

 

However.... which university, and do they have a campus in Singapore? Or even Malaysia (a couple of Melbourne-based unis have campuses in KL). You may be able to get part 1 (or the 3 part step) done  through them... When I had my recent degree awarded, I was told that there was someone on campus who could do a DFAT authentication - which he did (although, I haven't tested it yet... it looks more like a Certified copy, rather than Authenticated copy).

 

Secondly, do you have any friends back in Australia who can do the leg work for you if necessary? I had a friend do everything for me back in Brisbane (but, that was for the Criminal Record check, so that made it easier).

 

have you emailed the university (or even looked on their website) to see if they offer an authentication service? Even if they do, You'd still need to get a Chinese consulate to do their bit.. and that's something that may need to be done back in Aus too... but, as per the above, if you can get a friend to do that for you, it will be easier.

 

Trust me - it's relatively easy and pain-free... and I found the Chinese consulate side of things the most annoying!

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
