Recognition of higher education acquired at foreign higher educational institutions


The applications for academic recognition may be submitted by individuals or legal entities in three ways:

5.1. Personal submission of the application at the front office of NACID with an ID document.

You need to provide an original and a copy of the identity document. The original is returned immediately after comparing the data with the copy.

5.2. Submission of the application by an authorized person at the front office of NACID

In cases where the authorized persons are parents, children or spouse of the applicant, they can certify their status as legal representatives with a document certifying the civil status (birth certificate, family relationship certificate, etc).

Lawyers can certify their status as representatives with a power of attorney or a written power of attorney from citizens, for which no notary certification is required.

When the representatives are organizations (within the meaning of § 1, item 2 of the Administrative Procedural Code), the citizens are represented by a written power of attorney with a notary certification of the signature. When submitting an application, organizations are represented by:

  • Representatives by law (with a copy of the certificate of current status);
  • person authorized by a legal representative, with a written power of attorney with a notary certification of the signature (with a copy of a certificate of good standing).

If the name on the diploma is different from the name on the identity document, a document certifying the identity of the names must also be attached.

The power of attorney is valid only in the original.

Upon re-authorization, the power of attorney's authorization must explicitly state "TO RE-AUTHORIZE" or similar text.

Only applications accompanied by all the necessary documents are accepted for recognition.
