When received the Diploma

Some useful points you might need to do when received your diploma


Step 1

Note that some countries require the verification on the original, some “only” on the verified copy, some countries may not even need it (EU) – you need to find out the requirements in a particular country where you want to practice medicine/dentistry.

If the original is not required, not to spoil your original Diploma, have the Latin Diploma copied and the copy officially notarised/verified!!!

Onto the notarised/verified copy get the stamps from particular Ministries – see further:

Make notary verified copies of your diploma. You can go to any notary office (notář)

In Prague centre there are plenty of notary offices on Národní třída, Na Příkopě, U Prašné brány, Dlouhá street, etc. for the official verification of the copies – at these places, you should be also able to get the originals copied.
