Legalization of Documents

The Embassy in Ankara legalizes documents issued by Iraqi, Syrian, Jordanian and Lebanese authorities.

Before bringing the original documents to the Embassy of Finland in Ankara they have to be translated into English and legalized at Ministry for Foreign Affairs of the country, which has issued the documents. Both the original document and the translation must be legalized and the fee will be charges of both documents.

The Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Jordan legalizes translations of original documents if the translation has been made at an office that is approved by the Ministry. The MFA legalization office which is located in the 1st circle in Amman gives this information to clients if asked, so if the client asks for help, they could give the names of offices which they approve the translation of (of course worn translators).  If they don’t legalize a document it means that it hasn’t been translated by one of these offices.

In Jordan it is also possible to receive original marriage certificate in English.
