The legalization without apostille consists of a procedure by which the Embassy certifies the authenticity of a document issued by a State (Sweden) so that it is valid before authorities of another State (Argentina).
This is the type of legalization applicable when legalization with apostille is not possible.
The document, in order to be legalized without apostille, must meet the following requirements:
- Be original.
- Have original signature and indication of the name and position of the signer.
- Be in Spanish or English, or have a translation into one of these languages.
- Be legalized by a Swedish notary public or, if it is a commercial document, by the Swedish Chamber of Commerce.
- If it is certificate of origin: have been issued within the last 60 days.
- If it is certificate of origin: be accompanied by commercial invoice of the operation.
- Commercial document (includes certificate of origin): USD 200.
- Diploma, professional or technical degree: USD 50.
- Testimony or certificate of civil or ecclesiastical authority or judicial ruling regarding the name or marital status: USD 40.
Other public or private documents: USD 60.
The fee is paid in SEK at the exchange rate valid on the day when the document is submitted for legalization. The exact amount in SEK is informed by the Embassy.
Procedure | At the Embassy
1° | Submit the document for legalization at the Embassy any working day, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., without the need for an appointment.
