IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING CERTIFIED COPIES
If you choose to submit certified copies of required documentation instead of original documents make sure that that the copy is certified by a notary public as being a "True copy of the original document" (you may not certify it yourself) and carries the signature and official stamp of said notary public. We strongly recommended that you bring documents in original when submitting an application.
