Where and when can I obtain a certified copy of an official document?
The Welcome Center can certify photocopies of official documents for you. Please note that you need to arrange an appointment. Please make sure to bring the original document and provide us with the required number of copies.
If you need an apostille, please contact the ZB Division.
What does an accreditation cost and how do I pay?
Information on the applicable fees for certification can be found in Saarland University’s Verwaltungsgebührenordnung. Currently (as of 2021), certification of documents cost €1 per page, but at least €8.
When you hand in your documents, you will receive a paiment form which you will need to present to the staff at the Fotostelle in the Saarland University and State Library (SULB) where you will pay the fee.
