Document Legalization / Apostille
Marriage certificates issued by the Indonesian Civil Registry or any other public documents intended to be used in Latvia must be legalized or apostilled.
The Honorary Consulate General of the Republic of Latvia does not accept document legalization and therefore recommends for the document legalization to be apostilled instead.
The apostille procedure is ratifying an official's signature, stamp, and/or official seal in a public document. In Indonesia, it is carried out by the Indonesian Ministry of Law and Human Rights as the Competent Authority.
This service is available for 66 documents, such as marriage certificates, educational records, and training transcripts. It is accessible to Indonesians and foreign citizens who are members of the Apostille Convention.
The apostille in Indonesia was only launched recently on June 14, 2022. The service can be accessed via the online Directorate General of Public Law Administration (AHU) webpage at https://apostille.ahu.go.id with a payment of 150,000 Indonesian Rupiah as non-tax revenue (PNBP).
Latvia is one of the 121 States Parties that can use Apostille from Indonesia.
For more information, please get in touch with the Ministry's Contact Center via e-mail at [email protected] or telephone at 1500105 (Indonesia).
For public documents from Latvia to be used in Indonesia, such documents need to be legalized or apostilled.
