A foreign document has not been legalized by consular agencies ?

DMS Lawyers in Danang, Vietnam advise about how are papers and documents issued by competent foreign agencies subject to consular legalization ?

In case papers and documents issued, notarized or certified by a competent authority of a foreign country have not been legalized by consular agencies in accordance with Vietnamese law, can the translator’s signature be authenticated at a competent authority in Vietnam?

Papers and documents that must not be translated to authenticate the signature of the translator, including: papers and documents issued, notarized or certified by a competent foreign agency or organization, which have not been legalized by consular agencies according to the provisions specified in Clause 1, Article 20 of this Decree.

In case the originals of papers and documents are issued, notarized or certified by a competent foreign agency or organization, they must be legalized by consular agencies in accordance with law before requesting authentication of copies; except for cases where consular legalization is exempted under international treaties to which Vietnam is a contracting party or on the principle of reciprocity (Clause 5, Article 32 of Decree 23/2015/ND-CP dated February 16, 2015).

To sum up, documents issued by a competent authority of a foreign country must be consular legalized in accordance with the provisions of Vietnamese law, before the translator's signature is authenticated at a competent agency in Vietnam./.
