Note:

1- For any of the above services, the original document should be submitted along with a photocopy of the same. In case of power of attorney, the original document should be submitted with 2 photocopies.

2- Please also NOTE: The Embassy does not attest any certificate issued in India. Such attestations are done within India only through the process of apostille. The procedure of apostilling/legalising a document in India is explained at http://mea.gov.in/apostille.htm. A document apostilled in India does not need attestation by the Embassy of India.

3. India and Portugal both are signatories to The Hague Convention dealing with authentication / attestation of public documents issued by the authorities of the country of origin. Under the terms of this Convention, if a public document is ‘Apostilled’ by the country of origin, it does not require re-authentication by the authorities of the country in whose territory it has to be produced, provided both the countries are party to the Apostille Convention. With effect from 29.08.2007, the Government of India has started to affix the ‘Apostille’ sticker on public documents originating in India. In accordance with The Hague Convention, such documents are not required to be ‘re-authenticated’ either by the Portuguese Embassy/ Consulate in India or by this Embassy.

Documents originating in India or Portugal and carrying the Apostille sticker/ seal are therefore valid for presentation directly to Portuguese and Indian authorities respectively. These documents, therefore, do not need further authentication/ attestation by the Embassy.
