Schmidt & Schmidt offers the legalization of documents from Algeria.
Algeria has not joined the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents. Therefore, documents from Algeria cannot be legalized by apostille, they will only be recognized abroad after consular legalization, meaning their authenticity must be confirmed separately.
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 legalization of a document is a very lengthy procedure. It has to be authenticated by the Ministry of Justice and structural subdivisions. The document can then be finally legalized by the respective country's embassy.
Furthermore, any document issued abroad can be legalized for the use in Algeria. The procedure corresponds to the legalization of Algerian documents abroad: it has to be authenticated by both the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the country concerned, before it can be legalized by the Algerian Embassy.
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)
