Legalization in Palau

Schmidt & Schmidt offers the legalization of documents from Palau.

Palau 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 Palau 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 Palau

Due to the small size of both Palau and its population, the country only maintains embassies in Taiwan, Japan and the United States. The nauruan embassy in Washington, D.C. (United States) is in charge of the legalization of public documents for use in Palau.

Legalization of nauruan documents

The only countries to maintain embassies in Nauru are Japan, Belgium, the Philippines, the United States and Taiwan, therefore most other countries use their embassy in the Philippines for legal affairs with Nauru.

Legalization of a document is a process, which allows to legitimate the document issued in one country for its usage in another.

It means, if you want to submit a document, issued in one country, to authorities in a target country, the document must primarily prove its authenticity. Legalization confirms the authority of the issuing official as well as an authenticity of his signature and seal.

Legalization is needed for official non-commercial documents.

There are following procedures of legalization of documents:

  • Consular legalization
  • Apostille (a simplified procedure of legalization)
  • Legalization of documents by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry

Consular legalization applies to countries, that have not signed the Hague Convention of 1961, which implemented a law about the procedure of apostille (a lot of European countries are member states of this convention).

Legalization of documents through the Chamber of Commerce is carried out in relation to commercial documents (contracts, invoices etc).

No, not always. In some cases, countries can make bi- or multilateral agreements that completely revoke legalization of documents for their recognition in the member countries.

For example, a CIEC convention from 1976 or bilateral treaties between Germany and Belgium, Denmark, France, Greece, Italy, Luxemburg, Austria and Switzerland.
