Your application

The UK Border Agency (UKVI) requires a fully certified original translation for each document you provide that is not in English or Welsh.

If you're making an application in the UK the translation must:

  • be made by a professional translator or translation company
  • include details of the translator or translation company credentials
  • include confirmation from the translator that it is an accurate translation of the original document
  • include the date of the translation
  • include the original signature of the translator or an authorised official of the translation company 

If you're making an application outside of the UK, the translation must : 

  • be made by a professional translator or translation company 
  • include confirmation from the translator that it is an accurate translation of the original document 
  • include the date of the translation
  • include the translators full name and signature or the full name and signature of an authorised official of the translation company
  • include the translator/translations company's contact details 

If your translation does not meet all the requirements, even if it is just one point, then you must have a new translation made. Your visa application can be refused if the translation does not meet the requirements.
