Legalisation of Irish documents for the Philippines
Are you planning to work, travel or study in the Philippines? Do you need your Irish documents to be authenticated?
At Certified Translation Services, we have many corporate, but also private clients who need their Irish documents legalised for the use in the Philippines.
Most of the documents we receive are educational, but also police clearances and business documents, such as contracts. However, this is just a small amount on the variety of texts we receive. In order for Irish documents to be recognised and used in the Philippines, they first need to be authenticated. This process can be time-consuming and stressful.
How we can help you with the legalisation of your Irish documents for the Philippines
We, at Certified Translations, with offices in Cork and Dublin, can help you through the whole process. Simply drop off your documents in one of our offices and we will tell you exactly how your document has to be authenticated in order to be accepted in the Philippines. Once you dropped off your documents for the legalisation for the use in the Philippines, we will do the rest.
Apostille for your Irish documents for the use in the Philippines
First your documents need to get an apostille stamp, so that the documents are accepted as legal documents by the Philippine Consulate, and which will enable you to use your Irish documents in the Philippines. This requirement follows The Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents, or simply the apostille convention. The apostille is a certificate which is issued, in the case of Ireland, by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. We will get an apostille authentication for your document, as soon as you submitted them to us.
Notarisation of your Irish documents for the use in the Philippines
In some cases, it might be necessary to have your documents notarised before they can be authenticated with an apostille by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. This requires a visit to a notary with your documents. We can help you with this as well and get you a notarisation within a day.
Submission of your Irish document by the Philippine Consulate
After these steps are completed your Irish documents will be submit at the Philippine Consulate in Dublin. We also do that for you. Since we are there on a regular basis, we know the procedures and requirements at the Consulate and we will get your Irish documents legalised for the use in the Philippines as soon as possible.
