Find out about the notary and authentication services offered by the Permanent Mission.
Institutions in Switzerland ,Italy and/or Turkey may require Maldivian documents to be authenticated by the Maldivian authorities before they are accepted. The Mission can authenticate documents issued by government agencies in the Maldives
This notary/authentication service involves the placement of the Mission’s seal on the document and/or issuing a letter certifying the authenticity of a document.
Generally, we provide the following services:-
- Placing the consular seal on a copy of a document, attesting that it is a true copy of the original.
- Issuing an authentication letter verifying the details of a document written in Dhivehi.
- Attesting the signing of a legal document to be used in the Maldives. For example – a power of attorney or agreement to be used in a Maldivian court.
- Issuing verification letters stating the bona fide status such as verifying your relationship to a family member.
Please note: The Mission can not confirm the validity of the contents of the document. For example we can verify that a power of attorney is signed by somebody, but we do not verify that the contents of a document provide legal rights to a specific person.
If you have documents to authenticate, please contact us to arrange an appointment.
