Legalisation of documents

Submission and collection of documents: Monday and Wednesday, from 12 to 2 p.m.

The legalization process takes 1 week after submission.

The legalization fee per document is 17.20 JDs (in cash).

Official documents issued in one country are not always valid in another. Jordanian and Iraqi documents, intended for Belgian authorities, must be legalized so that Belgian authorities recognize them as with full legal effect.

Legalization certifies the origin of a document. It is an official confirmation of the veracity of the signature, stamp or seal of the civil servant who signed the document.
