The Republic of Indonesia acceded to the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization on October 5th and will no longer require consular legalization as of June 4th, 2022. An apostille from the appropriate Secretary of State or the U.S. Department of State will be accepted.
Please note that Indonesia’s accession is limited by the following declaration: “The Government of the Republic of Indonesia is bound by the provisions of Article 1 on the scope of public documents in the Convention with a declaration statement that provided that the documents issued by the prosecutor office as the prosecuting body in the Republic of Indonesia, are not included in public documents whose requirements of legalization have been abolished as set forth in this Convention.”
