Goethe-Institut certificates are official documents protected by law.

Please be cautious and consider the following points:

  • Make sure that the provider is included in our list of exam providers.
  • For a genuine Goethe certificate, always take the exam yourself and in person.
  • A reputable provider will never ask you for your registration details.

You should be suspicious of these promises:

  • A provider sells “original” Goethe certificates with or without an exam.
  • You are promised that you are guaranteed to pass the exam.
  • Someone offers (for a fee) to take the exam for you.
  • A provider wants to register you (for a fee) for the exam.

Unfortunately, there are many frauds circulating on the Internet, in chat forums, on social media platforms and in messenger services about obtaining a Goethe certificate. 

Using a fake certificate can make you liable to prosecution.
