Schmidt & Schmidt offers the legalization of documents originating from Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka has not joined the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents. Therefore, documents from Sri Lanka cannot be legalized by apostille, they will only be recognized abroad after they undergo consular legalization, a 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)
- Court decisions
- Notarized copies of documents
- Notarized translations
- Further notarized documents (authorizations, last will, declarations)
