Dichiarazione di Valore

The Embassy of Italy in Kuala Lumpur only issues “Dichiarazioni di Valore” (Declarations of Value, DV) exclusively for educational qualifications obtained in Malaysia and accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA).

To have your qualifications recognized in Italy, whether to continue your studies (school/University), or for work purposes, you will need to contact the relevant Italian Consulate, who will issue a “Dichiarazione di Valore” (DV).

The “DV” is neither an equivalent of an Italian qualification nor a comparability certificate. It will be up to the relevant Italian institutions (Ministry of Education, Uffici Scolastici Provinciali, Universities, etc.) to subsequently declare if a foreign qualification has a similar Italian equivalent: this is called “equipollenza” (equivalence/certificate of comparability).

It is possible to ask CIMEA (Information Centre on Academic Mobility and Equivalence) for a Statement of Comparability and a Statement of Verification for your academic and non-academic qualifications https://www.cimea.it/EN/pagina-attestati-di-comparabilita-e-verifica-dei-titoli. The above mentioned Statements from CIMEA are accepted by Universities https://www.cimea.it/EN/pagina-attestati-universita and by numerous Institutions (recognition procedure for public competition, Pension related reasons etc) https://www.cimea.it/EN/pagina-riconoscimento-non-accademico.

Please note that the “Declaration of Value” can only be requested for already-completed study cycles (e.g., A-level, Bachelor, Master, etc.).
