Legalisation

We recommend having your degree documents issued in Austria translated into the language of your country and legalised.

Please note the regulations of your home country.

  • Step I: Legalisation of the degree documents by the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung, Wissenschaft und Forschung, BMBWF) Information can be found here.
  • Step II: Legalisation of the degree documents by the Federal Ministry for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs (Bundesministerium für Europa, Integration und Äußeres, BMEIA) Information can be found here.
  • Step III: Further legalisation ("Überbeglaubigung") by the embassy of your home country in Austria.

Attention: The legalisation of documents can be quite expensive! Please enquire at your embassy in Austria or the appropriate ministry in your home country whether or not a legalisation as described above is necessary for you.
