[quote=“Battery9”]She found it:)
I once handed in my original…was fine. Then the 3rd or 4th time I reapplied, they denied it!!! Turned out too many degrees were fake and I had to have a copy made AT the SA embassy, and they had to put this chop on it. ALmost missed the deadline because of it.
then the next year it was fine again…I always think I know what to expect but Im just fooling myself![/quote]
About 3 years ago, they discovered that many of the SA diplomas were false so they changed the rules for S.A. This may be true for other countries too. When I was managing an adult school, I found a fake diploma from Canada which had been approved by a previous manager. I let it slide because it was, at that point, not really my problem. She was doing a good job, etc. However, expect some problems with S.A. degrees. If anyone is in doubt about an employees degree, it’s really very easy to check online. Usually, as in the instance I mentioned, there were uni’s in Canada with the same name but not in the city listed on her degree. Taiwan knows this and after finding many discrepancies, decided to ask for original only. Can’t say as I blame them. If you get caught up in this, supple the original or, in the alternative, a certified (verified) copy. If that doesn’t do it, get a copy of your transcripts sent directly from the university. It takes a couple weeks but I did it once when I was applying at a university. It was not a difficult procedure because you can do it online now.
