Signature certifications

Possible situations for a signature certification:

Power of Attorney

  • Declaration of consent (real estate deals, etc.)
  • Waiving of an inheritance
  • Application for a certificate of no impediment to marriage
  • Any other declarations, where a signature certification might be required

Attention: You do not need an appointment if you need a certified signature for an application for a certificate of good conduct, a certified copy or any other sort of certification/legalisation.

Please consult the informations on our website first:

Chinese or German.

Important: The German Consulate General cannot certify any signature on or for bank documents due to money-laundering regulations.

The Consulate General of Shanghai can only certify signatures on documents, which are intended for the use in Germany. In order for your signature to be certified at the Consulate General in Shanghai, your place of residence must be in Shanghai, Anhui, Zhejiang or Jiangsu. If you live outside of our consular jurisdiction, please contact the responsible German mission.

To certify your signature, the following documents have to be presented:

  • a valid passport (a Chinese ID Card cannot be accepted)
  • the document that has to be signed
  • the document that refers to the power of attorney or the value of the power of attorney/the capital of the company (“Stammkapital”) legal matters in Germany (this can also be value provided by your notary in Germany)
  • if the signee should not speak German, a written translation into English or Chinese is mandatory
  • enough money for the consular fee (between 20 and 250 Euros to be paid in RMB at the current exchange rate in cash)

In case you are unsecure whether you are in possesion of all the required documents, if you would like to know the exact fee or whether the certification of the signature is even possible, please e-mail us the relevant documents to the following e-mail address: rk-information@shan.diplo.de

Appointments, that have been booked under false pretenses, will regularly be canceled by the Consulate.

One appointment is for one person and/or 3 documents only!
