Hi! Do i really need to have my original school diploma/certificate be red ribboned, because what i have is a Certified True copy of my transcript and schol certificate (arabic translated).. which foreign affairs rejected.. I need this for applying work permit

sad thing is (cuz its expensive and time consuming), you need official documents to be red ribboned..
ALL YOUR DOCUMENTS SHOULD BE RED RIBBON. BIRTH CERT., MARRIAGE CERT., TRANSCRIPT OF RECORDS.. QATAR GOV'T IS VERY STRICT NOW.. AFTER U THE RED RIBBON, GO TO YOUR EMBASSY AND HAVE IT STAMP/ATTESTATION BEFORE GOING TO MOFA.
Not got a red ribbon on any of my docs. All that shows is that you know where the ribbon souq is!!!
to eradicate fake documents. Of course the inconvenience brought about it was tremendous, but what to do yanni? It's a requirement for getting a job. Unless you're looking for one but don't want to be employed! Lol!
we really dont have an idea that the original school diploma is needed (red ribbon) i thought just a certified true copy + red ribbon is enough, but i was able to get a stamp from qatar foreign affairs for this certified true copy yesterday.. just this morning i went ot chamber of commerce to have my diploma translated and went back again to qatar foreign affairs in female section she didnt accept it. it is really pain applying for a work permit =(
what is being authenticated are "certified-true copies" of documents. These are "copied" original documents with original signature/stamped of issuing authorities. Means these documents came from the issuing authorities. Example of which is certified true copy of TOR issued by the school itself and not photocopied outside (wherein the signature/stamped of school is also photocopied). Did I make myself understandable?
Flor that is what i have authenticated TOR and diploma with qatar foreign affairs stamped, but then i was informed that i have to translate my school diploma into arabic which i finished already (with stamp from the chamber of commerce) so i went back again to QFA but it was rejected as they need the original diploma in red ribbon
PRESENT the original documents. Maybe you just show the certified true copies only. The best prrof that it is certified true copy is to PRESENT the original. But definitely, don't leave your original documents to anybody or any office! Just present it!
haist.. i guess i really need the help of DHL to authenticate my original diploma just to be sure.. nweiz thanks for the information flor
yes you need to...
ptochai15, They will not put stamp or authentication on your original diploma. After you submit it to CHED or TESDA they will just made a Certified True Copy of it and again they will forward it to the DFA for the Red Ribbon Process.
**deleted** sorry for the double post.
finally i dont need to have my original diploma as labour office accepted the arabic translation, i just had a problem with the qfa when i presented my diploma in arabic form they asked for my original certificate in red ribbon
Potchai15 were you able to get this sorted out without your originals?
yes it should be stamped and attested...like what I did...very long process my dear...i am still waiting for my documents to finish..inshallah nxt week it will be on my hands.
if you need help pls send me msg. thanks
if you have relatives working in the govt agency, red ribbon would only take 2 to 3 weeks, like what my brother do, he just send the original docs to my sister
who is working in COA.
