Document Legalization

Document Legalization at the Consulate General of Indonesia is for Canadian Companies or individuals who need to legalize Canadian documents to be used in Indonesia. Legalization is the certification of the genuineness of the signature and seal of an official who has the authority to execute, issue, or certify a document. Legalization does not certify the genuineness, legality or credibility of the documents or their contents.
