Also “Non-Objection-Certificates” for use in Oman are not issued by the Embassy.
Since the Apostille Convention is in force for Oman and Germany public documents are no longer legalized by the Embassy.

It is not responsible for affixing Apostille to official registry or court docu-ments, or documents issued by state or local authorities. In this case please contact the issuing authority directly for advice where to apply for an Apostille.
