Schmidt & Schmidt offers the legalization of documents from Zimbabwe.
Zimbabwe 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 Zimbabwe if they are legalized, meaning their authenticity must be separately confirmed.
Legalization of foreign documents for use in Zimbabwe
Any foreign public document can be authorised at the zimbabwean embassy in the respective country of origin.
Legalization of zimbabwean documents
Public documents (only the original document, copies, even authorised ones, will not be accepted) can generally be legalized at your country's embassy in Zimbabwe. However, the zimbabwean government requires public documents to be pre-authenticated by the legal and consular section of the zimbabwean Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The processing of documents usually takes us about 14 days.
Courier services are charged and invoiced separately according to the courier service’s rates.
