Degree Attestation by HEC: Facilities opened in Lahore and Peshawar

Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan is highest education authority in Pakistan. It not only regulates the education system and approves universities' charter after careful evaluation but also involved in degree attestation in order to confirm the validity of degrees. HEC attests the degrees/diplomas or certificates issued by HEC recognized universities only which may be private/public. Further neither does it recognize foreign degrees. For many years, HEC was providing attestation services only in Islamabad city. In order to facilitate people, it has opened two more facilities for attestation at its regional centers which started their working on 3rd June, 2013.

One facility is opened in Lahore and other in Peshawar. This action would make it easier for many residents of the particular city and nearby towns and cities to get their degrees attested. Following are the details of location of both offices:

I wanted to get my attestation done from higher education services (hec) and ministry of foreign affairs (mofa) but could not find any reliable sources in Pakistan. Then I found Mamooinpakistan services they offered reliable service such as

Attestation from HEC
Attestation from IBCC
Attestation from British Council
Attestation from Notary Public
Attestation from Ministry of foreign affairs

I was stunned to so these kind of services and more in one window. I even asked my friend to submit a query on their website such as Mamooinpakistan submit inquiry as he needed HEC attestation for his Bachelor Degree.

My friend questioned me if Mamoo can be trusted for sending original documents , I was bit hassled too for sending documents overseas but after viewing there testimonials and awarded company by Pakistani IT government. I then realize that nothing could go wrong for getting these guys to get the work done.

Once I send documents it was easier for to pre pay them as they had several payment options like PayPal, credit card, western union and more… hence after the documents were received they started the process immediately of me and my friends. Within reasonable time they send us the scan of valid attestation and each document were send back to me the way it was send. Purely reliable source that i can count in Pakistan.

Their customer service and availability has hence made me and my friend forever client and I’ d recommend them again to my friends and family as we being in oversea need such attestation and other services from time to time.

Way to go Mamooinpakistan , heads up for your knowledge base and professionalism for helping me in attestation. Thumbs up to you and your team.. !!!
