  • Any original Malaysian birth, marriage, death or single status certificate for translation/submission at the German Embassy must bear the legalisation seal of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. As per the requirements of the German Embassy, any legalisation seal of the Ministry must bear the name of the registrar. No original certificates bearing the legalisation seal of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stating the wordings ‘OFFICIAL’ instead of the name of the respective certifying registrar can be accepted for legalisation by the German Embassy. As ‘older versions’ of birth and marriage certificates usually do not contain the details of the civil registrar, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs can in turn not specify the name of the registrar in their legalisation seal. As such, an ORIGINAL EXTRACT of the respective certificate must be obtained at JPN Putrajaya for the German Embassy to accept to legalise the original certificate from their side. The same applies for original certificates that have been laminated and that can therefore not be legalised. WE ALSO OFFER THE SERVICE OF PROCURANCE OF THE ORIGINAL EXTRACTS OF BIRTH, MARRIAGE & DEATH CERTIFICATES AT JPN PUTRAJAYA. DO LET US KNOW IF YOU REQUIRE OUR SERVICE AND WE WILL BE GLAD TO ASSIST!
