Schmidt & Schmidt offers the legalization of documents from Solomon Islands.
The Solomon Islands are an overseas department of the United Kingdom and as such acceded to the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents in 1965. However, after the Solomon Islands gained independence on July 7, 1978, their authorities refused to recognize the Hague Convention on their territory.
Although some Internet resources mention that an apostille procedure is valid on the territory of the Solomon Islands, in practice, the consular legalization is needed.
By consular legalization 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 of the Solomon Islands
- Certificates of civil status (certificates of birth, death, marriage and divorce)
- Education documents (school reports, certificates, diplomas)
- Court decisions
- Notarized copies of documents
- Certified translations
- Further notarial documents (authorizations, last will, declarations)
