Legalising South-African issued Death Certificate for foreign use
Death Certificates may need an apostille or authentication when an overseas authority has requested a copy of the document.
Following a death you may find overseas organisations including government bodies, courts and solicitors request a copy of the death certificate. This may be to register the death, make a claim on a pension, to resolve the deceased’s estate or to sell a property.
If the death certificate is not legalised it will most probably not be accepted outside the borders of South-Africa. In addition you may need to get a copy of the will or Estate documentation as issued by the Master of the High Court legalised by apostille or authentication.
Do not hesitate to contact one of the team by telephone or email for guidance with your document legalisation.
