Document Legalization in Bali

Quick solution to get your Document Legalization.

Documents issued by the Indonesian government, such as: birth certificates, marriage certificates, divorce certificates, death certificates, civil status statements, marriage books, diplomas and value transcripts, court decisions and so on will only be valid in several countries, especially Europe after going through the legalization process. This policy is determined by the country where the document will be used. The Legalization / Endorsement / Apostille process is generally carried out by the Indonesian Ministry of Law and Human Rights, the Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Jakarta and then by the embassy where the documents will be used.

Several documents need to be legalized first by other agencies before being legalized by the three agencies, for example: the KUA Marriage Book needs to be legalized by the Ministry of Religion or a diploma and transcript by the Ministry of Education. Some documents also need to be translated by an Authorized and Sworn Translator.

Before carrying out the legalization process, we recommend that you ask the agency where the document will be used. Especially regarding the type and maximum age of documents. After you know exactly what documents are required, please contact Bali PAS for assistance with the legalization and / or translation process as needed.

Due to changing regulations, other documents may be required during the legalization process. If this is the case, then we will let you know as soon as possible. However, in general the requirements for legalization are as follows:
