Cuban law offices are offering the service of legalization of documents for the Spanish Consulate, as the National Organization of Collective Law Offices (ONBC) of Cuba and the Spanish diplomatic headquarters confirmed in the social networks.
In a message posted on its Twitter account, ONBC reported that this service is associated with the procedures for obtaining documents in different offices and their prior legalization in Cuban government agencies. It is offered in its 187 offices distributed throughout the island, at a cost of 15 convertible pesos (CUC), which does not include the tariff applied by the Consulate.
“People who in any province of the country are interested in legalizing documents for the Spanish Consulate in Havana can go to the Collective Law Firm closest to their home to contract this service, without having to travel to the Consulate. It is recommended that the service be requested at the time of contracting the legalization of the document for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs,” says the ONBC tweet.

Meanwhile, the Spanish Consulate appreciated the performance of the ONBC, which is defined in the networks as “an organization of Collective Lawyers in Cuba, non-state, of a professional nature and eminently social vocation,” which is in charge of rates for the legalization of documents and recalled that “it is still possible to personally legalize documents,” in accordance with the schedules on its website.
