LEGALIZATION

Power of Attorney / Certify Signature for Non-Thai National Applicants

The Royal Thai Embassy in Stockholm does not have the authority to certify the signatures of individuals who are not Thai nationals. Therefore, we require you to first have your signature signed, witnessed by a Notary Public and then send your document(s) to be legalized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (UD Juridiska Expedition) of Sweden  (for Swedish citizens) or Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Latvia (for Latvian citizens). After completing this process, you may bring the legalized document(s) to The Royal Thai Embassy in Stockholm for certification.

Legalization of employment contract to work (For Thai nationals going to work in Sweden)

The Employer or the Employee must send the draft of the employment contract to the Royal Thai Embassy in Stockholm by email at legalization@thaiembassy.se for review BEFORE submitting the signed original contract to the Notary Public and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The process takes around 1-2 weeks after the contract is approved by the Embassy.
