DFAT documents

Authentication of documents for DFAT

Hard Copy Documents will be available again from Tuesday, 14 July - Please ensure you order these early and allow ample time for processing and delivery.  Documents will only be posted once a week due to the limited access onto campus and limited postal service, please allow a minimum 2 weeks for delivery.  No priority processing is available.

Authentication of documents for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) is available for a fee of $25 posted within Australia and $40 posted outside Australia, paid through OneStop (opens in a new window). It is recommended that you send your documents via a trackable method such as express post or registered post.

After you have paid the fee, post your documents and your OneStop receipt to:

Graduation Team
Western Sydney University
Locked Bag 1797
Penrith NSW 2751

This fee covers the authentication of up to three original official documents along with one copy of each of the originals (copies must be included with the originals). A combination of the three documents could be one testamur, one Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS) and one transcript or two testamurs and one transcript, for example. Any additional documents will require another payment of the DFAT Authentication fee.

This fee is to authenticate documents for you to then submit with DFAT to have your documents apostilled.  We are not able to apostille documents.

Please Note: Copies of original documents can only be stamped if all pages of the original document are included e.g. pages 1-5 of an AHEGS.  If all pages are not received this will result in a delay in us returning your documentation as we will be required to wait until the outstanding pages have been posted to us.

The following staff are authorised to authenticate documents for the Commonwealth Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).
