FBISE Document Verification

Verified stamp on envelop

Verification of Educational Documents was a hectic and lengthy process a few years ago when you had to fill the forms manually and submit them at the relevant board’s office by yourself. But now you can apply online and get your documents verified at your doorstep.

Although some boards still use old procedures, the Federal Board Islamabad is doing its best by providing Online Services.

After the declaration of the results, it is mandatory to have your documents verified by the relevant board to apply for higher studies at a university in Pakistan, some universities also require NOC as well for new admissions. Similarly, if you intend to apply for a study visa abroad, your documents must be verified. This verification is also required if you are processing an immigration application, as educational documents need to be attested in either case.

Verification Process:

The process is very simple. First, keep in mind that the Federal Board or any other board never verifies an original document i.e. (Certificate/Marksheet) so never send or hand over your original documents to anyone. The board always verifies a copy of your Certificate/Marksheet with a stamp and seal. Now it has been changed to a system-generated verified copy as far as FBISE is concerned, other boards may have the old system of stamping. If you are visiting the FBISE Office physically you can follow below mentioned procedure:

Self-Service Machine (KIOSK)

Recently, the Federal Board has introduced Self-Service Machines at the FBISE Office and IBCC Office Islamabad to enhance the convenience of the general public.

Now, you can obtain your Verified Document, Migration Certificate, and Fee Challan effortlessly, eliminating the need to wait in queues.

Simply start by submitting the fee challan, then proceed to fill out the verification or migration form, whichever is required, and submit it. Your required document will be generated instantly.

Inter Board Coordination Commission is the organization authorized by the Federal Government of Pakistan to attest educational documents issued by the boards across Pakistan. Their Head office is situated at Street No 39, G-10/4, Islamabad. They had regional offices in all the provinces of Pakistan as well.

After verification, the relevant board will hand over a verified copy to submit at the IBCC office for Attestation purposes.
