Consular legislation of documents in the UK and Ireland for use in Myanmar
Most documents can be legalised for use in a different country, however beware of the particular steps that need to be taken for each country. Generally the Myanmar consular legalisation process takes place in the country of origin of the document. For documents required for personal reasons such as education, employment, civil status etc, or for commercial reasons such as company or tax registration, there are certain steps which need to be followed in order for the document to be legally valid in Myanmar.
Legalisation of documents for use in Myanmar
If you have documents of either private or commercial nature which you require for use in Myanmar, we can carry out the necessary steps at Docsbase Translation and Legalisation Services UK and Ireland. Different documents may require slightly different procedures including document notarisation, Apostilles authentication for Myanmar , and Consular Legalisation in Myanmar Embassy in London , and we can talk you through the particular steps depending on your specific needs.
Consular Legalisation Process for Myanmar
Once you know which documents you will require in Myanmar, the first step is determining if the documents originate from Ireland or from the UK. As Myanmar has no Embassy or Consulate in Ireland, any documents originating from Ireland first need to be notarised in Ireland, before being sent on to the UK for final Consular Legalisation. At Docsbase Translation and Legalisation Services UK and Ireland we handle the entire process for you from start to finish, liaising internally between our offices in Ireland and the UK.
As Myanmar is not a member of the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents, an Apostille alone will not replace the need for Consular Legalisation in Myanmar Embassy in London . As such the document first needs to be Apostilled in the country of original, either Ireland or the UK, prior to Consular Legalisation. This is all part of the service which we offer at Docsbase Translation and Legalisation Services UK and Ireland.
In addition, if the document which needs to be legalised is a copy and not an original, this may also need to be notarised by Irish or UK Notary public prior to Consular Legalisation. Again, we deal with this requirement for you by using a solicitor to verify the authenticity of the copy.
Once these steps have been completed your document is sent to the Embassy of Myanmar in the UK for Consular Legalisation, before being returned to you by post or courier.
