Malaysia Document Attestation

Certify documents issued in Malaysia for official use in Europe and abroad.

Certify documents issued in Malaysia for international use

Authenticate documents issued in Malaysia, including birth, death and marriage certificates, Police Clearance Certificates, University Diplomas, Court documents, Certificates of Company Establishment, Certificate of Origin, Certificates of Free Sale, and other documents certified by a Malaysian notary public.

Malaysian documents required for submission abroad are legalized by the Malaysian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and then attested by the embassy of the recipient country in Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia is not a member of the Apostille Convention and does not issue Apostille Stamps. This means that Malaysian documents generally require an embassy stamp to be valid abroad.

  • Isarey offers expedited document legalization services in Malaysia.
  • We work with all major Embassies in Kuala Lumpur, including the embassies of Spain, Italy, Germany, France, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar.

Legalize Malaysian Documents

Malaysian documents can be certified for cross-border use through legalization

Consular Legalization

Legalization is a procedure used when a Malaysian document needs to be certified for official use abroad. Each document requires a double certification: first by the authorities of Malaysia and secondly by the authorities of the country where the documents will be used (the receiving country). This second certification, which is generally provided by the embassy or consulate representing the receiving country in Malaysia, confirms the first certification and so validates the document for official use in the receiving country.

Certified Translation

Where Malaysian documents are to be used abroad and where the receiving country has a different official language, certified translation may also be required. Isarey takes care of any certified translations required as part of the document attestation process, ensuring that translations are carried out and certified in accordance with local regulations.

Note that a certified translation on its own only provides assurance that the translation itself is accurate and true; it does not confirm the authenticity of the original document. The original document must be legalized for a certified translation to carry equivalent legal weight.
