Consular legalization means authentication of the documents issued or caused to be issued by the authorities of foreign countries for use in the territory of Georgia. You will not be able to use your documents in Georgia without first getting them legalized.
It is within the competence of the authorities of a foreign country to decide whether the document in question is subject to legalization, Apostille certification or is exempt from any requirement of authentication.
In other cases, consular legalization may be provided within 10 working days of an application being filed.
The applicant may receive the service by visiting the Consulate in person or by post.
The Georgian Embassy in Jakarta will legalize only those documents, which have already undergone intrastate legalization procedures in a respective foreign country. In case of Indonesia, it is the legalization by the Ministry of Law and Human Rights and Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
