Recognition of higher education acquired at foreign higher educational institutions


The normative period for processing the documents and taking a decision is 2 months from the date of submission of all necessary documents.

In cases where no additional documents are required, the period is about one month.

In cases where there are vague circumstances, additional information and/or documents are required from the applicant. They must be submitted no later than two months from the date of notification.

If necessary, a request for additional information may be sent to the higher education institution which had issued the higher education qualification or to the competent authorities of the country on the territory of which the higher education had been acquired.

Some foreign higher education institutions explicitly require your consent for NACID’s verifications. In such cases, your assistance is obligatory. Our Front office experts will advise you when submitting the application.
