One Off Enquiries

This section is designed to answer any queries you may have regarding our One Off Statement of Comparability service for the purposes of work, study or registration with a professional body. Please click on the blue plus icon to reveal the answer.

If, alternatively, you require a statement to meet UKVI visa or naturalisation requirements, then please refer directly to For multiple Visas and Nationality applications (more than one but fewer than 10) we offer an assisted service.

What is it?

If you are assessing the suitability of a potential or current employee for a position within your organisation we can provide a statement confirming the comparable level of their overseas awards. A One Off Statement of Comparability service would also help to establish suitability to study and register with a professional body.

How will it benefit us?

Our Statement of Comparability service is simple to use and will provide you with a statement that:

  • gives you confidence and reassurance in your decision-making process
  • enables you to identify and select the very best applicants
  • provides security against financial loss and business risk

Can we apply without translations of the documents?

For certain languages, the Translation Waiver Scheme removes the additional time and expense of acquiring a translation from a third party and enables us to process a One off Enquiry for a Statement of Comparability without the usual requirement of a certified translation.

  • Bulgarian
  • Catalan
  • Chinese
  • Danish
  • French

  • Macedonian
  • Norwegian

This service waives the requirement for submission of a translation; however, UK NARIC does not provide written translations.
