Authentication of Official Seals by MOFA

Japanese MOFA, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, authenticates an offical seal on a public document. This is a traditional way of authentication before Convention de La Haye du 5 octobre 1961, and is still available.

Authenticaion of Official Seals by Japanese MOFA is prerequisit before consul authentication. Therefore you need to get the document legalized by Consul in Japan before you submit it outside of Japan.
