MUSCAT — Indian Embassy Muscat has advised all the Indian expatriates, resident in and in-bound to the Sultanate of Oman, to get documents issued in India attested/apostilled by the Ministry of External Affairs, New Delhi or its designated authority with immediate effect. This has become mandatory now that both India and Oman are member states of the Apostille Convention (1961).

The indicative list of documents issued in India which are required to be apostilled include birth, death, marriage certificates, driving licences, affidavits, power of attorney, documents and educational documents like degree, diploma, matriculation and secondary level certificates etc.

The documents already attested by authorities in India/ Embassy of India Muscat are not required to be apostilled again.
The Ministry of External Affairs, India is the nodal Ministry for consular legalisation and Apostille of documents for use abroad. The Attestation Cell in the Ministry of External Affairs will accept pre-authenticated documents at the counter from 9.30 am to 12.30 pm on all working days ie Monday to Friday. The attested/apostilled documents will be returned the same day between 4 pm and 5.30 pm.

The service is being provided by the Ministry of External Affairs in New Delhi, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Guwahati and Goa.
All original documents requiring attestation/apostille should be pre-authenticated by the designated agencies in the state from where the document has been issued. The Ministry of External Affairs, India attests/apostilles the documents on the basis of the signature of the designated signing authorities of the state government/union territory/chambers of commerce.

The details of the Regional Authentication Centre (RACs) in the states/UTs from where the documents should first be authenticated are at under ‘Consular Services’. Only original documents are legalised/apostilled and not the photo copies.
In case of personal documents, Home Department/General Administration Department of respective states are the designated authorities for pre-authentication.

In case of educational documents, the documents should first be authenticated by the Education

Department of the concerned state government/Union Territory.

In case of commercial documents, these are to be pre-authenticated by the respective Chambers of Commerce in India before these can be attested/apostilled by the Ministry of External Affairs.

The following supporting documents are to be submitted along with the original document. (i) a photo copy of the document to be attested/apostilled and (ii) a Photocopy of the Passport of the person whose document is required to be legalised/apostilled.
Fee for apostille is Indian Rs 50 payable by means of Postal Order drawn in favour of Pay and Accounts Officer (PAO), Ministry of External Affairs, New Delhi, for apostille on each document. Documents requiring attestation/apostillisation should be submitted personally or through an authorised representative at the counters of the above-mentioned centres.

In no case, the documents may be sent for attestation/apostillisation by post or courier. The documents apostilled by the Ministry of External Affairs of India and its designated authorities are no longer required to be submitted at the Embassy of India, Muscat for attestation.

Likewise, the documents issued by the authorities of the Sultanate of Oman to be used in India are required to be apostilled by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Sultanate.
