Foreigner getting Married in Peru

Postby Justintid92 » Sat Feb 17, 2018 11:29 pm

I got my Birth certificate Appostiled. I'm having the translation done for the Birth Certificate. Would I need to get the translation CERTIFIED & NOTARIZED? or am I ok with it just being translated?

As far as I am aware you will need to. Do not forget you will need duplicate copies duly notarised. I had six. Even if they are not used immediately, there will come a time when they are. Also this is not the only document needed from your home country. Talk to the Municipal where you intend to get married, as it does vary from district to district.

If the translation is done outside of Peru: you must apostille the translation.
If the translation is done IN Peru: no need to apostille it, if the translator is certified (sworn).
