Transfer Certificate Information
It is a Ministry of Education requirement that all students must submit a Transfer Certificate (TC) before they start school.
What is a Transfer Certificate?
A TC must be in either English or Arabic and be stamped with your current school’s stamp.
Depending on the country that you are transferring from, the TC will need to be further attested before it can be submitted. See notes below for requirements by country.
All TCs must clearly state which year a student was promoted to at the end of the previous school year. Please pay particular attention to any variances across the school systems and, if in doubt, add the equivalent grade to the information.
A sample certificate is detailed below.
Which stamps do I need for my Transfer Certificate?
