Request for a duplicate
Duplicates replace the original certificate documents (certificate, transcript of records, diploma supplement). They are issues upon request if the originals cannot be found or have been lost or destroyed. A duplicate can only be issued if there is a credible assurance that the application requirements (irrevocable loss, destruction, etc.) have been met.
The issuance of replacement documents is subject to a fee in accordance with the Fee Statue for the Use of Special Services of the University of Hamburg (10.00 EUR to 40.00 EUR per document, maximum 75.00 EUR in total).
Here you will find information on how to determine the amount of fees for the use of special services at the University of Hamburg.
The duplicate must be clearly marked as such and must not deviate from the original (e.g. name changes are not taken into account.) Duplicates bear the date of the day on which the duplicate is issued.
Since the creation of the duplicate is often very time-consuming, you must expect a longer processing time of at least 6 weeks.
