Introduction to Authentication

In line with international practice and consular practice in China, the purpose of consular authentication (legalization) is to ensure that notarial deeds issued in one country can be acknowledged by relevant authorities in another country, and the deeds can have its due legal effect, which shall not be affected by doubts on the authenticity of the seal or signature on the deeds.

The Chinese Embassy is responsible for legalizing notarial deeds and other documents that have been duly authenticated by Ministry of foreign affairs and foreign trade of Jamaica, or Ministry of foreign affairs and foreign trade of Belize, or Cayman Island Government.

All notarial deeds and other documents need to be legalized for intended use in China.

Documents intended to be used in Hong Kong SAR or Macao SAR do NOT need authentication by the Chinese Embassy. However they need to be duly apostilled by Jamaica or Belize or Cayman Government where the document is issued.
