Schmidt & Schmidt offers the legalization of documents from Uganda.
Uganda 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 Uganda 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
- Notarially certified translations
- Further notarial documents (authorizations, last will, declarations)
Legalization of foreign documents for use in Uganda
Any foreign public document can be authorised at the ugandan embassy in the respective country of origin.
Legalization of ugandan documents
Some countries (e.g. Germany) have currently discontinued the legalization of public documents from Uganda due to formal reasons. Please contact us for further information on whether or not this limitation is relevant in your case.
The processing of documents usually takes us about 14 days.
