Every day we are a step closer to a world without frontiers. But in the meantime, there’s a lot of things that we still need to do if we want to travel from one country to another. Even when tourism is our only purpose. In this article we will explain why you may need certified translation services if you’re planning a trip.
Why do I need a visa?
A visa is an authorization that a country gives a foreign citizen allowing him or her to visit its territory for a certain period of time. Each nation has its own rules on this matter.
For example, if US Citizens want to travel to Argentina for business or tourism, they won’t need a visa, unless they plan to stay for more than 90 days. These same requirements apply to most countries around the world. Some nations require a visa even if you only want to get into the country for one day.
On the other hand, if the purpose of your visit is to study or work, you’ll need a special visa to stay in that country for as long as you need. Nevertheless, it is very likely that in both cases you will need certified translation services.

Certified Translation Services by professionals
If a visa is required for your destination, you’ll need to gather some documents to start the process at the embassy corresponding to the country you want to visit.
Each nation demands different documents, depending on the type of visa that you are applying for. But, in every case you must acquire certified translation services for each one that isn’t written in the country’s official language.
If you’re a Mexican citizen that wants to travel to the United Kingdom and study there for two years, you’ll need to provide a certified translation of all the diplomas you have.
What is a certified translation?
A certified translation is made by a translator that guarantees that the new document is an accurate and true interpretation of the original. Also, it must have a statement that assures its accuracy, the stamp of the certified translation services provider, and the sign of the interpreter.
