Legalization of Documents indicating the Civil Status (e.g. birth, marriage, death certificates)

Step 1
The respective document must first be legalized by the Consular Section of the Malaysian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The Ministry will stamp the original certificate, not a true certified copy of the document. For further information on the procedure and possible fees please contact the Ministry directly:

Wisma Putra
No. 1, Jalan Wisma Putra
Presint 2
62602 Putrajaya
Tel: 03-8887 4000 (General Line)
Fax: 03-8889 1717

Step 2
Get the legalization from the German Embassy.
The legalization is done on the spot during our counter opening hours. You will not have to book an appointment, just walk in during opening hours. You have to present the original certificate that was legalized and stamped by Wisma Putra. The fee for one documents is 25 €. The fees have to be paid when submitting the application. The fees will be converted into MYR according to the current exchange rate of the Embassy. You may pay in cash or with credit card (Visa, Master). You do not have to come to the Embassy in person, but you can also send a representative to get the legalization.

Translation
In most cases a translation of the document is necessary as well. The translation should be done after the legalization via Wisma Putra to insure that the stamp is translated as well.
The certification of the translation will be done at the Embassy if you take a recognized translator from the Embassy’s list and the fee for the certification is 25 €, converted into MYR according to the current exchange rate of the Embassy.
