Schmidt & Schmidt offers the legalization of documents from Papua New Guinea.
Papua New Guinea 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 Papua New Guinea 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 Papua New Guinea
Papua New Guinea only maintains one embassy in Europe, located in Brussels (Belgium) and one embassy in Washington, D.C. (United States), both responsible for their respective continent.
