Procedure for attestation of business documents 

 

Steps in getting the documents attested by the Embassy:

1.     Business documents that need to be attested must first be submitted to the respective sub-council of CCPIT (China Council for Promotion of International Trade, http://english.ccpit.org/ ).

2.     After verification by CCPIT, the documents are submitted to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, PRC (MFA,http://www.fmprc.gov.cn/eng/) for certification.

3.     These documents, once certified by MFA, are sent to the Embassy either by MFA or by the company/individual concerned (only in case of urgency).  The Embassy takes 7 working days to attest the documents and after attestation, the attested documents are delivered to MFA or directly to the company/individual.

Note: Documents submitted to the Embassy for attestation will be given only a "Seen in the Embassy" stamp.
