Translations

If you have documents that are not in English, they must be translated.

All documents which are not in English or Welsh must be translated by a professional translator or translation agency. You must not translate the documents yourself.

If you submit documents that are not in English without a translation they will not be considered when a decision is made about your visa.

If you have documents that you wish to submit with your visa application and they are not in English, you should contact a local translation service provider.

You must ensure that the translation you receive is a certified translation and that it also contains all of the following:

  • The translator's credentials *
  • Confirmation from the translator that it is an accurate translation of the original document
  • The translator's contact details
  • The date the document was translated
  • The translator's full name
  • The translator’s signature.

*if your translation is from inside the UK.

If you are outside the UK the translation must be able to be independently verified by the Home Office.

International Advice and Guidance have compiled a list of translation providers in Liverpool and across the country. Below you can find the names and contact details of those offering translation services in the local area.
