Schmidt & Schmidt offers the legalization of documents from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo did not accede to the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents. All documents issued abroad will only be recognised in the Democratic Republic of the Congo if they are legalized, meaning their authenticity must be separately confirmed.
Legalization of foreign documents for use in the Democratic Republic of the Congo
Any foreign public document can be authorised at the Congolese embassy in the respective country of origin.
Legalization of Congolese documents
Some countries (e.g. Germany) have currently discontinued the legalization of public documents from the Democratic Republic of the Congo due to formal reasons. Your public documents will have to be verified by the embassy of the document's state of destination in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. You will find more information about the procedure on the web page of the respective embassy in the section Legalization. You can contact us to inquire whether or not this limitation is relevant in your case.
The processing of documents usually takes us about 14 days.
Courier services are charged and invoiced separately according to the courier service’s rates.
