Schmidt & Schmidt offers the legalization of documents from Tanzania.
Tanzania did not accede to the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents. All documents issued abroad will only be recognised in Tanzania if they are legalized, meaning their authenticity must be separately confirmed.
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
- certified translations
- Further notarial documents (authorizations, last will, declarations)
Legalization of foreign documents for use in Tanzania
Any foreign public document can be authorised at the tanzanian embassy in the respective country of origin.
Legalization of tanzanian documents
Vital records are generally the only documents to be legalized from Tanzania. Prerequisite for the legalization itself is the superlegalization by "RITA" (Registration, Insolvency and Trusteeship Agency).
The processing of documents usually takes us about 14 days.
Courier services are charged and invoiced separately according to the courier service’s rates.
