Turkmenistan Document Legalization

Steps to Turkmenistan documents


Make sure your document is notarized by a local notary public unless it is an original copy/certification issued by a competent Federal/State/ local office.


The document must then be authenticated by the Secretary of the State where it is executed. Some states require that the document be certified by the County Clerk first.


If one of the Chinese Consulate-Generals holds consular jurisdiction over your state, you may submit your document to that Consulate-General for final legalization.

Get Started

  1. The document that needs to be authenticated and a copy of it.
  2. Letter of request addressed to the embassy of Turkmenistan stating the purpose of use of the document.
  3. Passport copy of the person who signs the letter of request.
