Do you need your documents certified and legalized for Malaysia?
Certifying and legalizing documents for Malaysia is a two step process. Your documents must first be certified by the State that issued your documents and then legalized by the Malaysian Embassy or Consulate office. If your documents requires notarization, please have them notarized before you mail them in to our office for processing. Federal documents are processed through our Washington, D.C. office and require U.S. Department of State certification and Malaysian Embassy legalization.
For example, let’s say you need your California birth certificate certified and legalized for Malaysia. This two step process would require your birth certificate to be certified by the California Secretary of State and then legalized by the Malaysian Consulate in Los Angeles. This process is necessary in order for the country of Malaysia to accept your documents. If your documents requires notarization (Example: Power of Attorney, Affidavit), then your documents requires notarization, State certification, and Embassy or Consulate Legalization.
The Malaysia Embassy or Consulate does not require your documents to be written in Malaysian. We recommend that you have your documents translated after you receive them from our office.
