Legalisation of documents

How to legalize a Jamaican document?

All official Jamaican documents that will be used in Belgium need to be legalized. This is done in two steps:

  • Legalization by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Kingston (all information at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, 21 Dominica Drive Kingston, Tel 876 926 4220-8, label found for: as_externallink.alttag).
  • Legalization by the Embassy of Belgium (costs 1.725,00 JMD from 1 June 2012; subject to change due to exchange rate €/JMD). Please contact the Embassy before coming with the document.

Unofficial documents from Jamaica that require legalization before they can serve their purpose in Belgium, have first to be legalized by a Justice of the Peace. After this first legalization, they have to be presented at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Embassy of Belgium in Kingston for their successive legalizations.
