Document Validation/Authentication

Legal documents that are originated outside Afghanistan, but are intended for use in Afghanistan require authentication before recognition by the legal system in Afghanistan.

The legalization process involves the affirmation of document validity through the evaluation of original signatures, stamp prints, and seals. They are then individually deemed as authentic components to support the validity of the paperwork.

The Embassy will validate, without charging any fee, all legal, educational, and commercial documents including birth certificates, death certificates, and identity documents that are issued by the relevant institutes in Afghanistan and authenticated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Kabul.
