• Legalisation at the Chinese Embassy

    Authentication, also called consular authentication or certification, refers to a consular practice ensuring the authenticity of the very last signature or the seal affixed to a document related to the application from a natural person, legal person or other organisation. In accordance with international practice and the consular practice established in China, the purpose of consular authentication is to ensure that notarial deeds issued in one country have due legal effect and can be acknowledged by the relevant authorities in another country with no question as to their authenticity.

    Chinese Embassies and Consulate-Generals are responsible for legalising notarised deeds to be used in China and other documents that have been duly authenticated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the country or the related authorities where the consular authentication application is to be accepted.

    • Non-governmental documents issued in Singapore such as the statutory declaration, power of attorney, business contracts, real estate contracts, testimonial papers, etc. first need to be notarised by a Singapore Notary Public and authenticated by the Singapore Academy of Law and endorsed by Singapore Ministry of Foreign Affairs – we can help with these steps – please, enquire during application.
    • Governmental documents issued in Singapore government departments such as Certificate of Marriage, Certificate of birth, court documents, no criminal records, etc. first need to be endorsed by Singapore Ministry of Foreign Affairs – we can help with this step – please, enquire during application.
