    What are passport translations?

    A passport is an official government document that’s used as a form of formal identification. Whilst primarily used to facilitate the ease of back-and-forth travel, its application can be used beyond that and is important when registering to live in a foreign country, as well as for banking procedures, academic enrolment, immigration, and other official practices where a valid form of identification is needed. For UK passport holders, for example, it also facilitates access to consular assistance from British embassies around the world.

    Our certified service includes a signed statement of truth from the translator, confirming that it is a “true and accurate translation of the original”. This affidavit is then signed and stamped by the translator. We will get your passport translated and certified quickly, so you can easily break down the language barriers holding up your request.

    As your passport is a legal document that confirms both your identity and citizenship, getting a passport translation is needed when travelling or moving abroad permanently, especially when the country you’re going to doesn’t consider your native language as official. Having a high-quality, professionally translated passport not only saves you a lot of hassle when traveling but you can use it as a form of identification when required.

    It goes without saying that the importance of a passport means that the quality of its translation is just as important.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How can I translate my passport?

    If you are looking to translate a passport, the first step is to select a translation provider. You should always use an accredited translation service that is either ISO certified or a member of the Association of Translation Companies for translating important documents such as your passport.
    The service you need will depend on the country in which you are submitting your documents. If you are submitting your documents to the UK government, for example, you will need to seek a professional certified translation service that adheres to the .gov certification requirements. This includes a statement of truth attesting to the accuracy of the translation and includes the translator’s signature and stamp.

    We provide high quality, ISO certified translations and work with native speaker translators with vast experience in offering certified language services. Not only do we guarantee that your passport translation will be accepted by the UK Home Office or UK NARIC, but we also offer advice on the type of translation you will need for use in a specific country.
    All you need to do is send us clear, legible scans of your passport along with your language requirements, reason for the translation, and country or organisation that will be processing the document.  This allows us to provide you with a professional translation that will meet the needs of the requesting authority.

    How long does it take to translate a passport?

    Our passport translation services are fast with most official documents being completed in 24-48 hours. Urgent translations can be done in a matter of hours as part of our same-day service. The length of time a translation takes depends on several factors such as the language pair, formatting and whether there is a need for notarisation or an apostille.

    A fast turnaround is helped by our ability to conduct most document translations remotely without the need to see physical copies or rely on a postal service. This never compromises the accuracy of the translation and we guarantee our quality of work. We offer an almost instant quote, saving you time and stress.

    Do I need to translate my passport?

    If you are completing an official procedure overseas and your passport is not in the country’s native language, you will likely be asked to translate your passport. We definitely recommend asking the requesting entity if there are any specific translation requirements.  Some countries, such as the UK, may ask that you provide certified copies of the translation and that the layout is exactly like the original.

    Certifying your passport translation allows UK courts, government agencies or foreign authorities to recognise and accept that the translation you provided is an authentic copy of the original. The statement of truth that accompanies certified translations verifies that the translated document is reliable and accurate.

    In some countries, sworn or legalised translations are also requested. We have expert project managers with the knowledge required to advise you on the exact service you will need for the specific purpose.

    Who can translate documents for visa?

    Only an accredited and qualified linguist can translate your documents if you are applying for a visa in the UK or EU. Such documents can include academic certificates, birth or marriage certificates, bank statements or employment contracts.

    Passport translations are required as part of most immigration procedures so it is important that you use the best service possible and that everything is perfect. Delays or rejection of applications can be the result of not having translations accepted.

    What is a foreign passport translation?

    A foreign passport translation involves translating a passport from its original language into another language. It may be required as part of an immigration process or as a requirement of some legal institutions. The quality and content of the translation are crucial and it should be accompanied by a certification of accuracy. 

    How much does a certified passport translation cost?

    A certified passport translation costs from £30 + VAT which includes free delivery of digital copies.  Additional fees apply for a hard copy sent by post starting from £5. We offer a fixed-rate per-page pricing policy with no hidden fees.
