LEGALISATION

Authenticate your documents

Nanga Registrars assists you to notarise and authenticate documents drawn or obtained from Kenya so that you can use them outside Kenya.

 

This process is known as legalisation or apostille (in jurisdictions that are signatory to the Hague Apostille Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents). Kenya is not a signatory to the Hague Apostille Convention and you will therefore require to have your documents legalised in Kenya before you can use them abroad. 

We know that this is important to you when you are dealing with cross-border transactions and you need to provide your counterparty with documents issued in Kenya. We will assist you to do this to reduce the back and forth with the counterparty on account of uncertainty regarding the validity of your documents.

DUE DILIGENCE SEARCHES

Do you require search results relating to an entity based in Kenya? Nanga Registrars will assist you to undertake searches in the relevant place and prepare for you a detailed report of the search findings. We undertake the following due diligence searches, among others:

  • Land registry searches;

  • Court judgments and proceedings searches to determine authenticity of court orders;

  • Legal entity identifier searches;

  • Intellectual property rights searches;

  • Collateral Registry searches;

  • Company Registry searches; and

  • International Registry of Mobile Assets searches.
