APOSTILLE & DOCUMENT CERTIFICATION SUPPORT

WHAT IS AUTHENTIFICATION (OF OFFICIAL SEAL)?

When a Japanese citizen establishes a corporation, opens a bank account abroad, buys or sells a real estate overseas, employed by an overseas company, or marries a foreign national, submission of documents issued by Japanese government offices or local governments, etc. such as a copy of the registration certificate or a copy of the family registration is required. However, it is very difficult for foreign government agencies to determine whether these official documents are genuine or not. Which is why, there is a procedure for document certification in which Japan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs proves that the documents are genuine by providing the "Authentification of official seal", and then the documents that have been confirmed by "Authentification of official seal" are submitted to a foreign embassy or consulate in Japan for "Legalization".
We provide application services for "Authentification of official seals" by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and "Legalization" by foreign embassy/consulate.

WHAT IS APOSTILLE?

When submitting Japanese official documents to an institution in another country, if this country has signed the "Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents(Hague Convention)", the "Apostille" - a sticker to prove document's authenticity(based on the Hague Convention) - by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan should only be obtained, and other procedures can be omitted.
We provide application support for apostille issuance to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on your behalf.

WHAT IS PERSONAL DOCUMENT CERTIFICATION?

For private documents with a signature or seal, such as contracts, powers of attorney, and wills, a process that a notary public certifies that the signature or sealis genuine to increase the credibility of documents is called "Notarizion". If a private legal document has a notarization, the credibility of the document is increased.
We will support the private document notarization procedure at the notary public office.
