Another request for up to date info on this topic - specifically for UK types of the English variety who are not currently in their homeland.
My understanding from reading on here and other sources is as follows. I'd appreciate it if people with recent experience could confirm / correct / clarify / offer advice.
1) A copy of degree cert and criminal record check needs
to be notarised/attested.
Any other documents? In some places I've read just those two while I've also heard some say a copy of the tesol/celta type cert is also needed.
I've also heard that some evidence of three years experience is required. This one confused me a bit, as many people start their careers in VN and thought that at least some of them were working legally.
2) The UK missions in Vietnam no longer wants anything to do with athenticating (or whatever they called it) documents for WP purposes
Makes things a little tricky for those not in the UK. i guess this requires the service of an Agent. Had a look online and the fees can be very high for this service. Can anyone share the name of the agent they used if they were happy with the service/price reasonable?
3) Lastly, on the topic of criminal records..
Theres more than a few types of these.. Which are acceptable? some can be a bit of a pain if haven't been in the uk for a while and a bit of a non person there in terms of verification of id/address. Disclosure Scotland used to be fairly painless in this respect but i think now unavailable to those who originate south of the border.
