New changes regarding the legal certification of documents

Since 16 August 2019, electronically signed documents which need to be legalised are no longer accepted in paper format.

With regard to these documents, you therefore have to submit your application for legalisation via MyGuichet.lu. The Passport, Visa and Legalisation Office will handle the printing of the documents and attach a legal certification stamp or an apostille to them.

Be reminded that the legalisation is required if you need to present a document issued by a Luxembourg authority to a foreign official authority in another country.

Notarial deeds, administrative documents and official declarations are namely the type of documents which require legalisation. These documents have to be signed by a civil servant/notary/sworn translator in order to be legalised.
