Schmidt & Schmidt offers the legalization of public documents from Indonesia by apostille.
Indonesia acceded to the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents in 2022. Since June 4th 2022, no diplomatic authentication or consular legalization of documents from Indonesia is needed for successful legal communication with other member states of the Convention. The documents only need to be attested by an apostille certificate with an "apostille" stamp on it by the issuing state's authorities in order to be valid in the state of destination.
The apostille is a stamp of rectangular shape. It should be filled in in the official language of the issuing authority. The heading "Apostille (Convention de la Haye du 5 octobre 1961)" written in French is a necessary requirement for the apostille's validity.
The responsible authority for issuing the apostille is the Ministry of Law and Human Rights in Indonesia.
Indonesia has included one exception under Article 1 of the Apostille Convention, consular legalization will still be required for documents issued by the Indonesian Public Prosecutor's Office. The exact process of consular legalization of Indonisian documents depends on the country you wish to use them in. Feel free to contact us with your request and we will do our best to assist you!
The following documents can be certified with an apostille:
- Extracts from the commercial register
- Certificates of civil status (certificates of birth, death, marriage and divorce)
- Education documents (school reports, certificates, diplomas)
- Court decisions
- Notary certified copies of documents
- Notary certified translations
- Further notarial documents (authorizations, last will, declarations)
Requirements for the documents:
The apostille can be exclusively issued for the original document. Therefore, the underlying document must be presented in good condition, with all stamps and signatures clear and readable. Furthermore, it should not contain alien markings or labels.
In addition to the legalization of your documents, we can provide you with high-quality translations.
Should you require company information for use in court, it needs to be legalized as well. We can therefore provide you with extracts from the commercial register of Indonesia including the apostille certification and translation into the language of the document's state of destination.
On average, processing the documents takes up to 14 days.
Courier services are charged and invoiced separately according to the courier service’s rates.
You can pay for our services by PayPal, bank transfer or credit card.
