The signature of their authorised translator, Mr Prabin RANA, will solely be recognized by the Embassy of France in India for the certification of such documents.

All original Nepalese civil register documents must be certified by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) of Nepal.

The applicable service fees for the certification of the translator’s signature are:
-  € 18 (i.e. INR 1440) per document for foreign nationals*
-  € 9 (i.e. INR 720) per document for French nationals*
(*) The service fees given in Indian rupees may vary with the fluctuation of the chancery exchange rate.

Any person requiring the certification of a document translated by the Alliance Française of Kathmandu must mandatorily send the original translation as well as the original Nepalese document to the Embassy of France in New Delhi, along with a demand draft in Indian rupees drawn in favour of ‘Embassy of France”.
