This certification, together with the Certification of Judicial State and the Certificate of Birth, must be endowed with the Apostille seal by the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs of Albania (service carried out by Albanian post). Prior to the announcement of the marriage the documents of the future spouse are to be sent to Albania such as: the act of birth of the foreign citizen, a certificate that he/she is not married and a residence certificate. The three documents must be legalized with the seal Apostille of the country whose citizen he /she is.

Registration of acts in the Civil Status Office in Albania
In order for a birth, marriage, or death certificate of an Albanian citizen residing in Brazil and other countries in the region to be registered in the Albanian state, must be endowed first with the Apostille stamp, which is taken at certain notary offices
(Cartorios) or in relevant institutions by respective country. Thereafter, this act may be translated into Albanian language at a translation and notary office in Albania and deposited to the relevant register’s office for registration.
Following the accession of the Republic of Albania to the Hague Convention on 9 May 2004, legalization of official documents is done in accordance with this convention. Thus, the embassy consular service does not carry out legalization of documents. The Albanian Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs is the only institution competent to carry out the legalization of documents issued by Albanian institutions, placing the Apostille stamp on the document. In this way, the document becomes valid for use by the Brazilian administration and other countries. Conversely, documents issued in other countries are apostolate for use by Albanian institutions.
At the request of Albanian citizens or Brazilian administration or other US states, the embassy consular service may issue certificates of various nature, as evidence of nationality, consular certificate, identity, etc., always based on valid official documents. (Fee: 30 euro.)
In the event of deaths, relatives or family of a dead citizen in Brazil or in the surrounding countries, notify the Embassy of the Republic of Albania in Brazil and until the transport of the body to the homeland, keep in constant contact with the Embassy.

The Death Act document (Certidão de Óbito - pt.) Or (Acta de Defunción - sp.) Must be filed for unsubscribing of the deceased citizen from the civil registry in Albania.
