Official certification of German official documents for the purpose of legalisation/apostille on federal documents
Please note that applications received via post may take some time to process, which can vary depending on the individual case. As of 1 February 2011, documents that have been certified or furnished with an apostille are sent exclusively to the applicant’s address in Germany for cash on delivery. For applications from outside Germany, the German address of an authorised recipient, who will pay cash for and receive the delivery, must be provided.
Should immediate processing be necessary in a particularly urgent case, this may be possible provided that you speak to the Federal Office of Administration in person during the service times specified below.
Information on frequently asked questions regarding legalisation can be found on the website of the Citizens’ Service of the Federal Foreign Office.
Information regarding applying for a certificate of good conduct can be found on the website of the Federal Office of Justice.
