Legalisation of Documents

All official documents issued in the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka and the Republic of Maldives can be recognized in Russia only after Legalisation by our Consular Office.

Before submitting the document to us please make sure it has been legalised by the Sri Lankan Ministry of Foreign Affairs (https://www.mfa.gov.lk/consular/) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Maldives (https://www.foreign.gov.mv/index.php/en/)

All documents issued by Sri Lankan and Maldivian Government Departments (eg. Registry of Marriage Certificates, Birth Certificates and Educational Certificates from local government schools) must be directly legalised by MFA in their original text (not in a “certified copy”).

The processing time for Legalisation at our Office usually is one working day (next day collection).

Consular fee for one document is 42 US dollars
