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.
Trots att Filippinerna har undertecknat Haag-avtalet om apostille, så har Finland inte ratificerat avtalet. Därför måste alla dokument legaliseras på Finlands Ambassad i Manila, trots att de har en apostille.
