Legalising documents 

The Finnish authorities may ask you to legalise a foreign document. This should be done in the country where the document was issued.

  1. The Ministry for Foreign Affairs of the issuing country certifies that the document is genuine and has been issued by its authority
  2. 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.
