Legalization of documents

Documents issued by Zambian authorities are not considered valid in Russia and, therefore, must be legalized.

To legalize a document it must first be presented at the Ministry of Foreign of Affairs of Zambia for legalization.

Upon legalization at the MFA of Zambia the document bearing the official stamp of the Ministry and the signature of the authorized officer must be presented at the Consular Section of the Embassy of Russia.

Standard legalization processing time at the Consular Section is 7 days.

Legalization fee is 756 Zambian kwacha per document.
