Schmidt & Schmidt offers the consular legalization of public documents from the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.
The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus is a partly recognized state. It has official diplomatic relations only with Turkey and informal relations with a number of other states through a system of “representative offices”.
Taking into account its international status, the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus has not joined the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents. Due to the non-recognition of Northern Cyprus worldwide, public documents from Northern Cyprus will be fully recognized solely in Turkey, while for other countries even the consular legalization may not guarantee their acceptance by the authorities of the state of destination.
Many public documents (for example, marriage certificates) issued in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus must undergo legal authentication in Turkey, a new set of documents need to be attested by apostille.
