Schmidt & Schmidt offers the legalization of documents from the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.
The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus is a partly recognized state and has official diplomatic relations only with Turkey. Northern Cyprus also has informal relations with a number of states through a system of “representative offices”.
Taking into account its international status the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus has not joined the Hague Convention of 05.10.1961 establishing the procedure for the simplified legalization for documents by authentication by apostille. Therefore, documents from Northern Cyprus can be recognized abroad hypothetically after consular legalization. The most difficulties connected with recognizing the documents issued in Northern Cyprus they will be recognized entirely only in Turkey. Nominally, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the TRNC authenticates all documents issued on the territory of the Republic for their further consular legalization, however, in practice there may be problems due to the nonrecognition of Northern Cyprus. So the legalization procedure cannot be completed in most countries in the world. In fact, when trying to use documents issued by the TRNC outside the Republic and Turkey, there is a high possibility that the authorities refuse to recognize them (although, based on practice, in some cases, these documents can still be recognized, but it is impossible to predict clearly).
Many people after receiving documents (for example, marriage certificates) in the TRNC must then take repeated legal actions in Turkey. And authenticate a new set of documents by apostille.
