    What do I need

    Advertisements



    I am considering Xusom for May 2011. I am a permanent resident of USA. Do I need a student visa for the MD4 program? What kind of paperwork do we need before we start school there?

Types of documents include corporate documents such as company bylaws and articles of incorporation, power of attorney, patent applications and trademarks, diplomas, transcripts, letters relating to degrees, non-marital status, references and job certifications, home studies, deeds of assignments, distributorship agreements, papers for adoption purposes, etc.
    The Authentications Office receives a variety of documents from commercial organizations, private citizens, and officials of the Federal and State Governments. The Office is responsible for issuing certificates under the Seal of the Department of State. It also ensures that the requested information will serve in the interest of justice and is not contrary to U.S. policy.
    Please note the following information must be obtained before the authentication process can begin.
    1. Signed before a notary public

    Thanks for you informed reply. I am still confused. I am a Citizen of India and Permanent Resident of USA for last 30+ years. I have my birth certificate from India. Do I have to send it to Authentications Office (A/OPR/GSM/AUTH) along with my Indian Passport for Certification? I understand sending the PCC for Authenticaion since I have been US Resident. Who would help with this paper work at Xavier? Does the school send the papers for the authentication or do we have to do this on our own? Is the process same for the all other coutries in Caribbean with other Medical School in Caribbean or is it an exception for Aruba?

    No worries. I am a citizen of india as well ( well that will change in a week, i get my canadian passport), But regardless since our birth certificate is from India, OLGA and ZUBAIDA (Administration in aruba office, XAVIER) made me send my birth certificate to India to get authenticated and apostilled. I know where and how to get it done, so email me and i can give you all the information. I am coming in sept and I just got my birth certificate back from india. Once you get it back you follow the steps I stated in my last post. The apostille just says, you can use the document anywhere in the world. You have to get all your authentication done yourself and send it to the New York office, they will sent it to aruba, where Zubaida will hand it in to the immigration. They DON'T DO ANYTHING !! They are very slow and useless. They messed up my paperwork and just told me if was wrong... i handed it in 3 months ago. I don't know about other countries, but this is it for aruba.

    I hope this helps... you can add me on fb Muskan Sethi or email me at muskan@ualberta.ca.
