Certification of documents for study purposes

For the purpose of studying in the Federal Republic of Germany, the Embassy certifies copies of School Certificates free of charge.

An appointment is needed to submit the documents for certification.

You are however required to have prior consultation with the DAAD Information Centre Accra for orientation on your study objectives. The DAAD would then issue you with a confirmation note to be presented at the Embassy.

Kind note that your documents would not be considered for certification without the confirmation note from the DAAD.

The certification process takes five working days.

Translation of documents


The Embassy does not offer translation services and regrettably there are no certified German - English translators in Ghana.

The following list includes several translators - in alphabetical order - who are known to the Embassy. However the Embassy cannot assume responsibility for their Services.

The Embassy recommends asking the German authority handling your documents beforehand, whether they will accept their translation, due to the lack of certified translators.
