Certify documents issued in over 100 countries for official use in Czechia

Isarey works across multiple jurisdictions to legalize international documents so that they are valid for submission to Czech authorities.

We legalize all types of official documents for use in Czechia, including identity documents, birth and marriage certificates, criminal record certificates, academic diplomas and corporate documents.

We work locally with certification specialists, notaries, law firms and certifiedCzechtranslators in over 100 countries, certifying documents for use in Czechia, including documents issued in:

Czechia is a signatory to the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents Hague Apostille ConventionExternal link (opens in new tab). This means that official documents issued in other signatory countries can be certified by an Apostille Stamp in the country where they have been issued. This stamp will generally be accepted directly by Czech authorities as confirmation of the document’s authenticity without need for further certification in Czechia.

However, documents from non-Apostille countries must be legalized by the authorities of the issuing country and then attested by the local Czech embassy or consulate. This applies to documents in countries such as: AE United Arab EmiratesUnited Arab Emirates - TW TaiwanTaiwan - MY MalaysiaMalaysia - TH ThailandThailand - ZM ZambiaZambia - QA QatarQatar

European Union

Submission within the European Union
Certain documents do not require Apostilles for submission to authorities in Czechia when they are issued in another European Union Member State (the receiving authority should accept the original or a certified copy).

When applying for certain public documents, a multilingual standard form may be requested to accompany the original. A multilingual standard form must always be issued and signed by an authority of the EU country where the public document is issued, providing a translation aid designed to help the receiving authority to understand a public document which is in a language not accepted by Czechia.

Documents not requiring Apostilles for use in Czechia include birth, death, marriage certificates, absence of a criminal record (a clean criminal record of a citizen of the issuing country), certificates of nationality and residence:

Other documents, including academic certificates, still require Apostille certification and certified translation to be valid in Czechia.

Certified Translation

When documents are written in a language that is not an official language of Czechia, then a certified translation may also be required. It is important to ensure that the certified translation is valid for use in Czechia. Translations not done in Czechia may require separate legalization alongside the original document.

Isarey provides document attestation services to private, corporate and institutional clients worldwide. Our presence in different jurisdictions and our local experience and expertise dealing directly with authorities and embassies in different countries means we can save you time, frustration and money, ensuring that documents are properly prepared so that they are accepted by Czech authorities.
