  • LEGALIZATION AND APOSTILLE

  • The Republic of Poland and the Republic of Finland are Parties of the Convention of 5th October 1961 Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization of Foreign Documents. Therefore, the official documents issued by the authorities of one of the Parties do not require a legalization done by the consul. The legalization has been replaced by an apostille certificate affixed to the document.

     

    The official documents issued by the Finnish authorities – in case they are to be submitted to the Polish authorities – shall be affixed by an apostille. The competent office in Finland to affix apostille is Maistraatti (http://www.maistraatti.fi/en/List-of-local-register-offices).

     

    The official documents issued by the Polish authorities – in case they are to be submitted to the authorities of another state – shall be affixed by an apostille according to the requirements of that state. The office competent in Poland for affixing an apostille is the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Warsaw. More information on the respective procedure is available on the following website : http://www.msz.gov.pl/en/travel_to_poland/apostille/apostille;jsessionid=62B161B89AC832F5D117C74D17C8222F.cmsap1p

     

    The Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Helsinki does not affix apostille to documents and does not intermediate in its obtaining from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Warsaw. The procedure may be processed via post or by another person (a separate power of attorney is not required).
