Extra-legalization

Tradexpert offers you extra-legalization services for the Romanian public documents to be used in a State that is not a party to the Hague Convention of October 5, 1961.

In order to be valid outside the borders of Romania, a series of documents, such as judgments, notary deeds and original documents issued by the Trade Register must be subject to the extra-legalization procedure. We present below a series of useful information, regarding the extra-legalization procedure of Romanian public documents.

  1. The extra-legalization of the documents drawn up or legalized by Romanian courts is done, on the part of the Romanian authorities, by the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
  2. Categories of documents that are extra-legalized by the Ministry of Justice

Pursuant to the legal provisions invoked above, the Ministry of Justice extra-legalizes the following categories of Romanian public documents:

judgments (in original) issued by Romanian courts (judgments must be legalized by the court issuing them, with the print name of the registrar legalizing the judgment or by the president of the court);

– notary deeds: for example: notarized statements, legalized copies of documents, legalized translations of certain deeds;

– original documents issued by a bailiff;

– original documents issued by the Trade Register, clearly signed and issued with the header of the Ministry of Justice.

  1. Romanian public documents, such as those referred to in Section 2, shall be extra-legalized only if they will be used in a State that is not a party to the Hague Convention of October 5, 1961.

Important note: After the extra-legalization of the Romanian public document by the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the document is subject to extra-legalization at the foreign diplomatic mission or consular office in Romania.
