Schmidt & Schmidt offers the legalization of documents from Montenegro by apostille.
Montenegro has joined the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents in the year 2006. Therefore no diplomatic authentication or legalization of documents from Montenegro is required for the legal communication with another member state of the convention. The documents only need to be stamped with an "apostille" by the issuing state's authorities in order to be valid in the state of destination.
Responsible for issuing the apostille are Ministry of Justice (for judicial documents) and сourts. The courts certify documents issued by state and municipal institutions in the territory under the jurisdiction of the respective courts. The document can be certified by the chairman of the court personally or by a person authorized by him.
An apostille may be affixed in the Ministry of Justice of Montenegro if samples of the seal and signature on the certified document are in the database of the Ministry.
Documents issued by the official authorities of Montenegro and the former Yugoslavia and compiled in the Montenegrin language (Latin) or in the official languages of the former Yugoslavia can be apostilled.
The process of legalization of documents in Montenegro includes verification of their authenticity. After passing this procedure, a special stamp - an apostille - is affixed to the document (or to a copy certified in the main court). Usually the apostille is placed on the back of the document, or on a separate sheet, after which the document is stitched.
An apostille is a stamp of rectangular shape. The heading "Apostille (Convention de La Haye du 5 octobre 1961)" must be in French.
The following documents can be authenticated by apostille:
- Certificates of civil status (certificates of birth, death, marriage and divorce)
- Education documents (school reports, certificates, diplomas)
- Trade register excerpts
- Judicial decisions
- Notarially certified copies of documents
- Notarially certified translations
- Further notarial documents (authorizations, last will, declarations)
- Commercial documents legalized by a state organ of registration (articles of incorporation, registration certificates, tax registrations etc.)
Requirements for the documents:
An apostille can be issued exclusively on an original document. Therefor, the latter must be in an apparent good condition, all stamps and signatures have to be clear and readable. Furthermore, it must not contain alien marking and labels.
In addition to the legalization of your documents, we can provide you with high quality translations.
If you want to bring company information before the court, it needs to be legalised as well. We are therefore offering extracts from the commercial register of Montenegro including apostille and translation.
