What is legalization?

Documents issued in one country ('Source Country') which need to be used in another country ('Destination Country') must be 'authenticated' or 'legalized' before they can be recognized as valid in the foreign country. This is a process in which various seals are placed on the document.


If your document is intended for use in a country which is a party to a treaty called the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents ("Hague Legalization Convention" HLC, 1961), obtaining a special "Apostille" certificate is generally all that is required.

Consular Legalization

Consular legalization is intended for non-parties to Hague Legalization Convention. Documents issued in another country, are recognized as legal after the following procedure:

  • The document must be certified by a notary officer(certification of signatures, copy or original document)
  • Credentials of the notary must be confirmed by the district court, or any other authority (depending on the country, in which legalization takes place)
  • Then Ministry of Foreign Affairs puts its mark, confirming the powers of the court
  • Last authority - Embassy (consulate) of the country, where the company will operate. After checking the correctness of compiling all the documents and the credentials, embassy (consulate) endorses a document of its seal.
