Apostille & Embassy Legallization for Alumni

Authentication of educational documents is difficult yet important for international students. It provides an authenticity of your educational documents and helps build the credibility of your qualifications at the time of employment. To keep students at ease, AIMS has incorporated Apostille and Embassy legalization in its specialized student and alumni services.

International students can benefit from this service at the time of applying for the degree or even after you have received your degree. AIMS also sends the attested documents directly to potential employer and institutes as per the students’ preference.

Which Route to Choose? Apostille or Embassy Legalization

An “apostille” is a form of authentication issued to documents for use in countries that participate in the Hague Convention of 1961. A list of countries that accept apostilles is provided by the US State Department. If the country of intended use does not participate in the Hague Convention, Embassy legalization is the alternative method for authenticating those document.

Our Students Say!

Studies at AIMS sets a very good knowledge and understanding for anyone willing to join the corporate world. Achieving the professional qualifications from AIMS would also be a great accomplishments for those who has the experience in their field but lacks formal qualifications. I am extremely delighted that my experience is now supported by formal recognized qualifications
