My university is traditional and the degree will probably be in Latin when I finally get it next week. Will immgration accept a degree in Latin or do I have to get a translation? If so do I get both the degree and translation notarised? I assume the degree will say BA somewhere on it and the name of my course and the unversity. Any advice is appreciated as always.

Mine came with a translation page (yours probably will too). But they just looked at it when I showed it to them when I had to go to immi again and didn't even bother with the translation.

OK, so if it looks okay, I shouldn't have to worry. I might have to get a translation from my uni though and that could be difficult as they couldn't be any less helpful or more rude. I sent them 5 emails concerning picking up my degree and they never answered once. Bastards! I hope the translation comes with the degree or my new school aren't going to be happy waiting.

What kind of a school did you go to Shocked ?

But mine came with a stamped translation page. I hope yours does too. If not, it will probably still be ok, though I am talking from one experience in Suwon immigration.

Mine came with a stamped translation page too, and it went over fine at Mok-dong Immigration all three times I've had to submit it (twice for work visas, once for that stupid "degree confirmation" thing).

I got my E-2 visa without showing the translation. Furthermore, my translation is not official. It is not stamped.

Mine came with nothing but a cheezy green vinyl folder, with a stiff cardboard back.

I've never needed a translation here in the ROK, although I've only worked at hagwans, so perhaps a real school or university might require one.

Cheers

I graduated from a fine Jesuit university that would never print an important document in anything but Latin.

I never needed a translation page for my degree certificate written in Latin. Never had a problem.

Thanks for the reassurance guys, I feel much better about this now. All I have to do is wait until the 14th and I can finally get the ball rolling.

Laughing I'm surprised no one posted "Well, get it notarized at the Latin embassy." Laughing
