police clearance

hello everyone. im a newbie here. just have a question as this is stressing me out. my hubby applied for family reunification visa so i could join him in switzerland. i have submitted all the papers that i need except for the police clearance. since my husband is in zurich, my police clearance should be translated in german. does the translated document have to be authenticated and legalized or a notarize document will do? any input will be appreciated...

Re: police clearance

Yes, it has to be put before a Public Notary for stamping and signing. It also has to be on headed paper showing the name of the translator.

Re: police clearance

Double check that it needs to be translated. English is usually fine.

Re: police clearance

In English will suffice. I did and it worked without a problem.

Re: police clearance

Thank you all for your reply. I decided to
Have it translated and notarized just to make sure.
I don't really understand why it has to be translated
since the people who works at Swiss embassy in Vancouver
can totally understand English and they could just relay whatever
written information is in the certificate.oh well.....all I can do
is comply........
