Transfer Certificate

 

As a requirement by the United Arab Emirates’ Ministry of Education and for us to be able to register your child legally with the Ministry/KHDA, it is mandatory that we receive a Transfer Certificate (TC) from your child’s current school. Registration at any school in Dubai without a TC is not possible.

All children entering Grade 2 and upwards at Greenfield Community School must provide a Transfer Certificate, regardless of the country and educational curriculum they are coming from. For children moving from a local school in Dubai, an online transfer will be requested by the GCS Admissions Team through the KHDA electronic transfer system.

For students moving from other Emirates or outside of the UAE, please see below the stamp and signature requirements per country of origin:

Location Attestation required by Ministry of Education
