Mozambique Documents and Legalisation Services Offered:


Since Mozambique is not a signatory of the Hague Convention, official documents cannot be apostilled and have to be authenticated by embassies to be used abroad. If you wish to use your documents outside of Mozambique, this is the process your documents need to go through to be considered valid outside of the country.

Police Clearance

Mozambique nationals that wish to apply for an immigration process or extended visa abroad must produce a valid police clearance certificate. In some countries, police certificates are only valid for three months. In general, this background check certificate is considered valid for no more than six months.

Birth Certificate

At times, you might be required to produce a birth certificate for official use abroad. A birth certificate is a document that contains information about an individual’s two biological parents or legal guardians. Generally speaking, the birth certificate is a document that can be used for international travel. It is also used for emigration purposes, and applying for employment abroad.

Marriage Certificate

In the event of having to travel abroad or applying for visas for certain countries, you need to submit certain documents. You might be required to submit a copy of your marriage certificate before applying for your other travel documentation. Citizenship applications, adoptions, and other legal processes might also require you to submit these documents.

Death Certificate

Whenever a loved one dies, the death must be registered with the local state or state vital records office within days of the death. The vital records office then issues copies of the death certificate. The certificate can then be used to handle the deceased person’s affairs. You will need to provide a death certificate for purposes such as dealing with a diseased estate and claiming ancestral citizenship abroad.

Divorce Decree

There are many instances where you might be required to submit a copy of your Mozambique Divorce Decree (certidão de divórcio), such as re-marrying. These documents are issued by the civil status records office in the municipality where the divorce was granted. They can also be issued by the court.
