    Default Certified Copy Documents

    Hello All,

    I hope everyone is doing well. I am currently working on my ITA documents and just have a question about which is the preferred copying method. Would it be copying through a computer scanner then printing it(usually on colored ink printer) or through a photocopy machine (most copy machine here are using black and white only).

    Thanks in advance

    Are you referring to certified copies, or just the duplicates that accompany the originals?

    We provided most of the originals, although a couple of certified copies. All were done black & white with a normal photocopier.

    Default documents

    Hi Fisheye

    When I had any documents certified they wanted the originals that they would then copy to certify.

    Check with whom is going to certify first.

    I did this in the US and here in New Zealand: I made color copies in both locations, and made extras of my passport and work permit. I had those certified as well. So, I not only had copies to submit to the department of immigration, but I had certified copies for other purposes. One employer I worked for was very grateful to have a certified copy of my work permit to put in my file. I also had a couple of copies of my Ohio driver's license, New Zealand driver's license and my proactising certificate made, and they liked that when I applied for my current job. They may not be a necessity, but they are well received.

    Worst case situation, you have certified copies if you need to replace something quickly. (You have to send some originals with your PR paperwork, but they kept the certified copies I sent.)

    I appreciate all the reply. I think I am going to send original documents of those papers here that I can easily replace such a police clearance and some certificate of employment (except those companies that does not exist anymore of course) to make NZIS happy Have a nice day all.
