Where can I get my foreign diploma evaluated?

Question:

 
I need to provide proof for the 30% ruling application that I have a master degree. Where can I get my foreign diploma evaluated?
 
Answer:
 
An organisation called Nuffic can evaluate foreign diploma's and provide a statement which shows how your qualifications are recognized in the Netherlands. 
 
You can find more info about the evaluation of foreign diploma's on http://www.nuffic.nl/en/diploma-recognition/diploma-recognition or on https://www.idw.nl/en/home.html.

If you are a USA Citizen trying to have your diploma verified you need to contact the state you received the diploma from upon graduation. Ask them about getting a apostile stamp for authentication for the government you want the document verified for. This will verify that it is a legitimate document.
