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..
