Schmidt & Schmidt offers the legalization of documents from Senegal.
Senegal has not joined the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents. Therefore, documents from Senegal 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 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)
Legalization of foreign documents for use in Senegal
Foreign documents must be legalized before they can be used in Senegal. The representations and embassies of Senegal all over the world are in charge of this process.
Legalization of documents from Senegal for use abroad
The pre-authentification of public documents by the senegalese Ministry of Foreign Affairs is required prior to the legalization process. Non-marriage certificates can not be legalized by the Ministry.
Afterwards, the pre-authenticated original document can be legalized by your country's embassy in Senegal. A translation of the document is usually not required.
Usually, processing the documents takes us 14 days.
Courier services are charged and invoiced separately according to the courier service’s rates.
