The Finnish authorities may ask you to legalise a foreign document. This should be done in the country where the document was issued.
- The Ministry for Foreign Affairs of the issuing country certifies that the document is genuine and has been issued by its authority
- The competent Finnish mission in the country legalises the document by appending to it a certificate proving the right of the official at the country’s ministry for foreign affairs to issue such certificates.
Indonesia is not a signatory to the Hague Convention.
If you use an agent, he or she must present at the Embassy:
- a limited power of attorney for handling your matter, stating the names of the authoriser and the authorised person and the intended use of the document
- an identity card
- a copy of a passport or Indonesian identity card, authenticated by the authorising party’s signature
The authorising party is the person whom the document applies to. In the case of a minor, the authorising party is the child’s legal guardian.
