Documents
You should keep a copy of all documents (including the application form) submitted to ACWA, as the Department of Immigration and Border Protection may require copies when you lodge your application for a visa. If you require ACWA to provide a copy of your file then costs and waiting periods will apply.
Please note: If forged, plagiarised, altered or falsified documents are submitted we will not issue an assessment report nor provide a refund.

Translations
If your original degree, diploma, certificate or any other supporting document is not written in English, a translation of the documents into English must be provided along with certified copies of the original documents.

ACWA reserves the right to request that translations are completed by a translator accredited by the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI). Level 3 accreditation is normally required.

Certification
Certified copies are copies which have been formally endorsed as true copies by a person or agency recognised by the law of your country, (for example, a notary official, a Justice of the Peace) and recognised by the Australian Embassy, High Commission or Consulate for this purpose.
Each copy of the document must be certified separately and must clearly show:
1.    The words ‘certified true copy of the original’
2.    The signature of the certifying officer
3.    The name and address or provider/registration number (where appropriate) of the certifying officer legibly printed below the signature
It must be possible, from the details provided for ACWA to contact the certifying officer if necessary.

Agents
ACWA deals directly with applicants seeking the assessment of their overseas qualifications. ACWA will not discuss your application with other people (third parties) unless specifically authorised by you to do so. If you want someone such as a family member or other agent to deal with ACWA on your behalf, you will need to attach a letter signed by you, authorising this person (by name) to act as your agent. If applying online an agent authorisation letter must be uploaded. Regardless of whether or not an agent is appointed, the address used for correspondence will be that as nominated by the applicant on the form.
