Legalisations in Singapore

LEGALISATION OF SINGAPOREAN DOCUMENTS TO BE RECOGNIZED IN SPAIN​

10/26/2021
PROCESS
Since 16th September 2021, SAL (Singapore Academy of Law) affixes an Apostille Certificate on every Singaporean document which requires legalisation. Once the Apostille has been issued on a Singaporean document, Spain accepts it as a document containing legitimate legal signatures or seals and no further legalisation is required at our Embassy.
SAL is located at 1 Coleman Street, #08-06 The Adelphi, Singapore 179803. Please visit the Singapore Academy of Law’s legalisation portal at https://legalisation.sal.sg. For enquires, you may call their main line at (65) 6332 4388 or email them at legalisation@sal.org.sg.
 
EXPLANATION
On 18th January 2021, Singapore acceded to the HCCH Convention of 5 October 1961 abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents (“Apostille Convention"). To operationalise the Apostille Convention, SAL will be issuing Apostilles for all Singaporean documents bound overseas from 16th September 2021.
An Apostille is a certificate issued under the Apostille Convention authenticating the origin of a public document. Contracting Parties to the Apostille Convention can agree to accept Apostilles in place of any other form of legalisation or authentication. The intention is to simplify cross border laws and remove the need for various legalisation rules which may differ from one jurisdiction to another.
Any recipient of the Apostille certificate will be able to search and verify the authenticity of the legalised document via a search register at https://legalisation.sal.sg/.
 
NOTE
Documents legalised by the Singapore Academy of Law (SAL) prior to 16th September 2021 require an additional legalisation step at out Embassy in order to be fully legalised since they do not contain an Apostille Certificate. Prior appointment is required. Please book an appointment via the following link:
The fee is SGD 12.00, in cash only. Please bring exact change. In most cases, legalised documents will be ready for collection on the following day.
Documents legalised by the SAL (Singapore Academy of Law) from 16th September 2021 onwards do not need further legalisation at our embassy, since the apostille certificate will suffice.
