The Ministry of Education, Human Resource Development & Labour, as of December 01, 2015, will attach cost to the process of verifying or certifying academic and professional qualifications.
The process, being managed by the Department of Human Resource Development, has for many years been executed with no charge, with the unit bearing all of the cost associated. It is due to this reality that the rates will now be applied.
Rates for verification/certification of documents will range from Five Dollars ($5.00) to Thirty Dollars ($30.00), based on the particular request being made and the level of qualification of the document being verified, since higher level awards require more in-depth investigation.
The process remains the same whereby originals and copies of certificates are lodged with the Department of Human Resource Development and takes a period of three (3) to five (5) working days for completion. However, the Ministry will put in place measures to deal with urgent requests.
