Attestation / Legalization of Documents


Documents issued by any authority in Sri Lanka should be first certified by the Consular Division of the Ministry of External Affairs in Colombo with respective seals and signature/s, before forwarding to the Consulate General for its attestation.


Documents issued by Swiss authorities should be legalized by the relevant Cantonal Authorities, before a request is made to the Consulate General for any attestation.

 

Applications for attestation of documents can be submitted either personally at the Consulate General or sent by post with photocopies.

 

The Consulate General authenticates only the seal and signature of the officer, who has legalized the document and not the contents of the document.

 

Consular fee is CHF 50.00 per Document
