• signing and dating it
• printing their name under the signature
• adding their occupation, address and telephone number

The person certifying the document may charge you a fee.
Certifying a translation

If you need to certify a translation of a document that’s not written in English or Welsh, ask the translation company to confirm in writing on the translation:

• that it’s a ‘true and accurate translation of the original document’
• the date of the translation
• the full name and contact details of the translator or a representative of the translation company
Certificates will only be considered valid if they have been issued within 6 months of the visa application
