Find a precise checklist of all the documents required for this course at the bottom of this page.


Please pay attention to the following points:

  • Certificate of documents: The certificates required for certain documents must be obtained from official bodies (registry office, city council, association of municipalities). The certification must include: the attestation clause, date and signature of the attestor, stamp of the official seal.
  • Mailing of documents: Please avoid using excessive packaging materials (elaborate application portfolios, folders, transparent sleeves etc.) because we are unable to send these back. Generally, it is not necessary to send the documents by registered mail and it is only useful, if you are sending a registered delivery letter with a return receipt (receipt by the ZFH, as an acknowledgement of receipt for you). However, this is not expensive but from our experience it does not guarantee that the letter will actually be with the recipient within one day.
