Can Malaysian documents be legalized by Apostille?

Malaysia is not a member of the Apostille Convention and does not issue Apostille stamps. Malaysian documents legalized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs need additional authentication by the embassy of the destination country in Kuala Lumpur before they can be used.
