How to authenticate the signature on a document

    Prior to signature legalization on any document (power of attorney, consent, family members list, life certificate, declaration of inheritance) the signers identity is established on the basis of a valid passport of Bosnia and Herzegovina, afterwards he/she signs the appropriate document and puts down his/her signature in the Signature Authentication Book. However, due to the vastness of the territory the consular office has to cover and due to the costs of our citizens arriving at the Embassy, an exemption from this rule has been granted which allows an authorized official (Notary Public or Commissioner for Oaths) to notarize the signature on the document which is to be mailed to the Embassy for legalization together with a photocopy of the 2nd and 3rd page of a valid passport of Bosnia and Herzegovina..
