Muscat, The Government Communication Centre today issued a
statement on the need to adhere to the ratification and equivalence of academic certificates
obtained from abroad by the Ministry of Higher Education. The centre said that all persons
are obliged to attach certified documents and transcripts when registering any request
related to updating their data and qualifications. Otherwise, the application will not be
processed, in addition to the signature of the applicant to the undertaking in the event that it
is proven otherwise, he or she shall bear all legal proceedings.
The statement also stressed the need for the concerned institutions to directly react with
what is posted on the social networking platforms on this issue through coordination with the
Ministry of Higher Education and to clarify the procedures that have been taken against all
those who proved that they obtained such certificates. This is in light of the government’s
keenness to enhance the interaction of the concerned parties with the posted issues on the
social networking platforms through their websites and official accounts.
This comes in the light of what has been circulated recently through social networking
platforms on cases in which academic certificates issued by fake universities were attached
in the forms of employment and after what the official follow up has reached in this regard.
