Medical Certificate Translation

When applying for a visa to study abroad, work abroad, work at a hospital overseas or for any other reason, you may be required to submit medical related documents together with an English translation as part of your visa application or you may a require a Japanese translation of such document if applying to come into Japan. These may include a medical certificate, a doctor’s certificate, your mother and child handbook, urine test results, HIV test results, prescriptions, a summary of your hospital admission history, a referral letter (patient referral document) or other medical document. To ensure that the translation of these certificates is unbiased, some countries and institutions require translations to be carried out by a non-related third party or translation company and not by you yourself. For information on death certificates or postmortem certificates please visit our separate page. ⇒ Death Certificates
