Schmidt & Schmidt offers the consular legalization of documents from Micronesia.
Micronesia did not accede to the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents. All documents issued abroad will only be recognized in Micronesia if they undergo consular legalization, la procedure by which the signature and the seal of foreign documents are authenticated.
Responsible is the respective embassy of the country in which the document shall be used.
The following documents can be legalized:
- Extracts from the commercial register
- Certificates of civil status (certificates of birth, death, marriage and divorce)
- Education documents (school reports, certificates, diplomas)
- Judicial decisions
- Notarially certified copies of documents
- Notarially certified translations
- Further notarial documents (authorizations, last will, declarations)
Consular legalization of foreign documents for use in Micronesia
Micronesia maintains four representations around the world. The embassy in Washington, D.C. (United States) is responsible for the states of the western hemisphere, whereas the embassies in Tokyo (Japan) and Beijing (China) overtake the representation for the countries in the eastern hemisphere.
Consular legalization of documents issued in Micronesia for use abroad
No western country besides the United States maintains an embassy in Micronesia. Therefore most countries just use another nearby embassy, such as the Philippines.
Schmidt & Schmidt provides the legalizations in relevant embassies of more than 80 countries all over the world. We will assist you in all issues concerning the procedure of consular legalization.
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.
