• Russian Embassy legalisation

    All official documents issued in the Republic of Singapore can be recognised in Russia only after Russian Embassy legalisation.

    First of all the documents will need to be legalised by the Singapore Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) – we can help with this step – please, enquire during application.

    • All documents issued by the Singapore Government Departments (e.g. ACRA, IRAS, Registry of Marriage Certificates, Birth Certificates and Educational Certificates from local government schools) first must be directly legalised as originals (not as a “certified copy”) by MFA – we can help with this step – please, enquire during application.
    • Non-government documents (private or company documents) must be first referred to a Notary Public for notarisation and then to the Singapore Academy of Law for certification before the documents can be presented at MFA for legalisation – we can help with these steps – please, enquire during application.
    • Commercial documents such as invoices, certificates of origin, bills of sales, fumigation certificates, etc. must be certified or seen by any of the four Chambers of Commerce (International, Chinese, Indian or Malay) or the Singapore Manufacturers’ Association before presenting to the MFA for legalisation.
