Attestation or legalization is the process by which a government agency in Turkey (Turkiye) officially approves a document and guarantees the authenticity of a document.

If the authorities deem it necessary, the document must include a legal translation in addition to the original document. When foreign documents have to be presented to local authorities, a certified translation is required.

These documents therefore must be translated and signed by a sworn translator and then certified by a notary, court or any other authority.

Educational documents, for example, should be certified by the Turkish Ministry of Education.

Requirements for attesting documents in Turkiye:

  • Original certificate(s) or scanned certified copies (if allowed)

  • Valid Passport copy

  • Declaration form

  • Power of Attorney


The document can be apostilled if the nation to which it will be delivered is a signatory to the Hague Convention of 5 October 1961 Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents (HCCH 1961 Apostille Convention).

The document must be legalized through the consulate of that foreign nation in Turkey if the country to which it will be submitted does not participate in the HCCH 1961 Apostille Convention.
