The Declaration of Value

Introduction

The Declaration of Value (DV) is a fundamental document for those wishing to have their academic or professional qualifications obtained in the United Kingdom recognized in Italy. In this article, we will explore the meaning of the Declaration of Value and the crucial role played by the English notary in the process of obtaining and legalizing this important document.

What is the Declaration of Value, and why is it necessary?

The Declaration of Value is a document issued by Italian diplomatic-consular representations abroad, attesting to the legal value of an academic or professional qualification in the country of origin. In the case of qualifications obtained in the United Kingdom, obtaining the Declaration of Value is essential to facilitate the recognition of such qualifications in Italy.

The Role of the English Notary

The English notary plays a crucial role in the process of obtaining the Declaration of Value, providing authentication and legalization of the necessary documents. Here are the key steps in which the English notary is involved:

  1.  Certification of Documents: The first step involves the certification of documents necessary for the Declaration of Value. The English notary authenticates the signature of the qualification holder and gives legal validity to the documents.
  2. Apostille and Legalisation: After certification, the English notary can proceed with placing the apostille on the documents. The apostille is an international certificate that authenticates the notary’s signature and seal, making the documents legally valid even in international contexts.
  3. Sworn Translations: In case the original documents are in the English language, the English notary can also provide sworn translations into Italian, contributing to the understanding and acceptance of the documents by Italian authorities.
  4. Presentation to the Diplomatic Representation: Subsequently, the documents certified and legalized by the English notary can be presented to the Italian Diplomatic Representation in the United Kingdom for the issuance of the Declaration of Value. The English Notary as a Facilitator of the Process

The English notary plays a fundamental role in ensuring that the documents are properly certified, legalized, and ready to be presented to the Italian Diplomatic Representation. Their authentication provides additional security and validity to the documents, facilitating the process of recognizing the qualifications in the Italian context.

Conclusion

In conclusion, the English notary plays an essential role in the process of obtaining the Declaration of Value for qualifications obtained in the United Kingdom. Their expertise in certifying, legalizing, and authenticating documents is crucial to ensuring their acceptance and recognition by Italian authorities. Collaborating with an experienced English notary is a crucial step in facilitating the path to the recognition of qualifications abroad
