1. PAKISTAN : All documents duly attested by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Pakistan have to be accompanied by a certified translation.
1. Original documents from Pakistan should be translated in one of the national languages of Belgium: French and Dutch.
- Translation into French is possible in Pakistan and must be done by either one of the 5 “Alliances Françaises” settled in Pakistan (Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore, Faisalabad, Peshawar) (see addresses below) or by the Agence française de Traduction (see addresses below). Original Pakistani document and its translation into French, both legalized by the Embassy, will be directly accepted by a Belgian French speaking administration.
- For the moment, no recognized institution in Pakistan offers the service for translation into Dutch. Therefore, documents to be used in a Belgian Dutch speaking administration might need to be translated a second time into Dutch once in Belgium.
