  1. All foreign documents which will be presented to the Turkish government must be internationally legalized with an apostille. Then the document, and the apostille, must be translated into Turkish by a sworn translator. In this guide, I'll explain what an apostille is, how you can get one for your foreign document, and what to do if your country doesn't issue apostilles. What is an Apostille? An apostille is a certificate, issued under the International Apostille Convention, which authenticates the origin of a public document. This makes the document it's attached to a legally recognized document in Turkey, and in other countries which are members of the International Apostille Convention. The Apostille Convention The Apostille Convention (Hague Convention of 5 October 1961 Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents) established an agreed-upon, standard way of legalizing documents between countries. It required each country to designate one or more "competent authorities," as the convention calls them, to issue apostilles. You'll find a list of participating countries on the Hague Conference on Private International Law website. What To Do If Your Country Isn't On the List If your country isn't on the list, then it isn't participating in the Apostille Convention, and therefore doesn't issue apostilles. So you'll have to contact your country's embassy, consulate, or foreign ministry and ask them how to legalize your document for use in Turkey. And you can go directly to "Step 3: Get the Document and the Apostille Translated." The 3-Step Document Legalization and Translation Process While all of this sounds very complex, getting an apostille is actually quite simple, and a lot less intimidating once you understand this three-step process. Step 1: Learn Who the Competent Authority Is and How to Send Documents to Them In most countries, the government office which keeps public documents isn't the same government office which issues apostilles. The office that is authorized to issue them will be specifically named in the Apostille Treaty. There's a handy list of all of the competent authorities, for every country in the convention, here: HCCH Authorities (per Party) Find your country on the list and click on the link which has the words "Competent Authority (Article 6)." That will take you to a page which explains how to contact the competent authority, including a link to a website which should give you information about where to send your document, what the fee is, and how much time it will take. Note: There may be one, or more, competent authorities for each country. For example, in the UK the competent authority is the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), while each of the UK's overseas territories each has its own. In the USA, each state has its own competent authority, and so does the federal government in Washington, DC). Step 2: Send Your Documents to the Competent Authority Create a cover letter which includes your e-mail address and telephone number, as well as your return address, the name of the document you're sending and its date and document number. Send the cover letter and document by registered mail or cargo delivery service to the address listed on the competent authority's website. What the Competent Authority Does Each competent authority has a file containing the signatures of government employees who are authorized to issue public documents. After receiving your document, they'll check the signature on the document against their signature exemplars. If everything is okay, they'll attach the apostille to your document (or stamp or place a seal on it), and send it back to you. How Much it Costs and How Long it Takes Each competent authority has its own fees, so the cost will vary. The time it takes will also vary according to your choice of delivery method. But once it gets to the competent authority, turnaround time is usually just one or two business days. Step 3: Get the Document and the Apostille Translated After you receive the document with its apostille (or other legalizing document if your country isn't part of the convention), both must be translated into Turkish by a yeminli çevirmen (sworn translator). The translator will then have the translation notarized. For a typical document, this might take as little as one or two hours. To learn more about sworn translators, see Sworn Turkish Translators: What They Do and How to Find One. Your Foreign Document is Now Legal in Turkey! You can now give your document to the Turkish authorities and it will be accepted. It is now as legal in Turkey as it is in your home country. Insider Tip: The notary will stamp both the original document, the apostille, and the translation on the back with his or her stamp. That stamp will include a document number. Photograph or write that number down and keep it for your files. If later you need those same translated and notarized documents, you can simply take that number back to the same notary and ask them to pull it from their files. It will be a lot cheaper than going through the whole process again. Finding a Sworn Translator The Yeminli Çevirmenlik Federasyonu (TURÇEF, or in English, Federation of Sworn Translators) Has a website here: https://www.turcef.net/ At the bottom of the home page is a menu of the regions of Turkey. You can use this to find a listing of sworn translators for your area, which include their contact information and the languages they are authorized to translate to and from. Another way to find a translator is to find a notary first. Notaries work with a specific group of translators who have offices nearby. Finding a Notary You can find all notaries public in Turkey here: http://www.tumnoterler.com/ You can also just walk around the center of town and look for their signs. To learn more about notaries, see Notaries in Turkey: What They Do, Why You'll Need One and How to Find Them. A Note on Private Companies which Arrange Apostilles Important! There are numerous private companies which charge for getting an apostille for your document. They are not "competent authorities" under the Apostille Convention. They simply do everything that I have written above, which you could just as easily do, and charge you for it.

  2. Application in progress to extend our 2 year residence permit. We are dual citizens of the UK and Georgia. We have always used our Georgian passports in all our dealings in Turkey. We have been told by immigration office in Alanya that they need a apostille marriage certificate from Georgia now. I am in the process of arranging that now. When we receive it, it has to be translated in Turkey and registered in Ankara. My questions are: Do we both have to go to Ankara or is it possible to do it by post? Is it better to have the apostille in English rather than Georgian, then translate it to Turkish here?
  3. My mothers has graduated from Turkish high school at Boczaada. Now she needs to have the document immediately translated because of a new job. For that, she needs apostille stamp, but she has no idea where she should sent it. Also, it is not possible to travel to Turkey for that, with the whole pandemic situation. So, does anyone know that should she do??!! Thank you in advance.
  4. Hello, I am not sure where can I ask my question. I want to go to new-zealand. one of the documents they require is : If you are living outside of New Zealand, we can accept the following forms of certification of your identity documents: by a Notary Public by Commissioner of Oaths by a New Zealand Embassy/High Commission or Consulate staff (we will also accept the equivalent from Australian and United Kingdom's in exceptional cases) Apostilles Does anybody know is a notary public same as noter in turkey? Do they certify my passport? (I have a legal resident permit, but not Turkish citizen) Or how about apostilles and where can I find that?
  5. When I did my son's short-term, at the provincial immigration office in summer, I had his birth certificate legalised from the UK government, as well as a translated and notarized copy of it from Turkey. At the interview the lady said she can only accept the original one so I had to give that to her. I have another original with me that isn't legalised. She said get a copy of it stamped by your consulate and then stamped by us and we can accept it. I called the UK consulate in Istanbul and they don't certify birth certificates. Anyone face the same issue and what shall I do?
  6. Hi everyone( Although I think it's only Ken that is here!) I have a question about the apostille stamp on the kids birth certificates, does anyone know what that is, and whether Canadians need to apply for it? I taught just a birth certificate would suffice, if anyone knows it would save me a trip to the embassy! is it a must on the first meeting or would the agent request that as an additional document? Thank you in advance.
  7. Hello, I live in Balikesir and last month my father came here with a tourist visa of 1 month expiry. He wanted to stay longer so we applied for short time Residence Permit. He got a tax number, opened a bank account and even got a 1 year health insurance. The time we went for the meeting on the given day, the lady in charge told us she wanted a certificate of clean records from us. She told us to go to Istanbul, to our embassy, and get the certificate and then come back again and she will give the permit. I told her it wasn't necessary in the past because she hadn't asked me for the certificate so She said this was the new law and my father has no record in the system and it is his first time applying so they want the certificate. we asked several people and they all are saying there is no such a thing required for applying I wanted to know if it's for sure or what? What can we do? anyone knows about this?
  8. I have a problem about a document that immigration ask me to take my son's RP. as you can see below (number 3), they want me something about born certification. I don't know Turkish and that's the reason I'm asking you for help. I already (last year) translate my son's birth certificate under the name "dogum belgesi", then I go to a noter and they stamp it but the immigration officer told me that is not enough and you should go to embassy (both Turkish and my country embassy) and stamp it (he told me in Turkish and I really didn't understand what he said). you should know that I got RP for my son last year with exactly this document but they didn't accept this year ! Can you please tell me what I need and how can I provide? thanks and wait to hear something from you
