The certificate of existence can also be confirmed at the administration of your local community.

For certified copies, please bring:

  • the original documents,
  • copies of the original document which need to be certified,
  • the fee in cash

The current fee for the certification of a photocopy up to ten pages is the HUF equivalent of 10 Euros.
