What is a certified official copy?
Make a copy of the original document and take both versions (copy and original) to your university OR a notary public OR the German Embassy OR any other person/institution authorised to legalise documents and have the copy certified as a true copy of the original. You keep the original and send us the attested hard copy by post.
