Documents issued by the Singapore government departments in their original text (e.g. marriage certificate, birth certificate, educational certificate from public schools etc.) can be brought directly to the Singapore Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) for legalisation.  However, computer-generated documents (e.g. Registrar of Marriage Search, Certificate of Making Decree Nisi Absolute, Adoption Petition, Business Profile from ACRA etc.) must first be certified by the issuing department before legalisation by MFA.  For legalisation of true copies, please present the photocopy together with the original document for verification.
