Thanks a lot for all your information.
However, my diplom is not local diplom, it's a foreign diplom. I head that they certificate only local documents.

My Australian diplomas and certificates were CTC'ed by a Swiss official at my Stadt for use in Sweden ( www.studera.nu ) - no issues.

Re: Where can make certified copies of my diploms in cheap?

If you looked at the receipt above, it translates to CHF1 per copy.

CHF57 for 57 pages ( some documents had several pages ).

It is merely to certify it as a TRUE COPY of the ORIGINAL, nothing else. The original could have been faked, in which case, you would need an Apostille etc. ( far more expensive ) to certify AND authenticate.

An Apostille does NOT authenticate a document, but rather the signature of the person certifying it (and their capacity to certify it).

Another similar service we provide is an Apostille. This is only provided through DFAT offices in Australia. Apostilles are basically authentications but are only used in some countries.

Re: Where can make certified copies of my diploms in cheap?

Have you thought of bringing the original to the Uni? I brought my originals, in person, and the admissions clerk made copies and, as I had everything else with me, accepted my application as complete. And, yes I was admitted to the program.

Yes, I brought my documents to the Unil,but the lady whom I talked to, she told me that they need certified copies of all documents. Besides, as my diploms are provided by Russian, I need to translate them also, that would be more expensive.

Canton of Basel Stadt Notaries: CHF 20 for first page and CHF 2 for every other page. (Copy fee is included). If own copies are provided at least same fee, but if time consuming it will cost more.
