LEGALIZE YOUR DOCUMENTS WITH QUALIFIED HELP

‘Document legalization’ means to provide it with legal effectiveness in the country to where it is intended.
When a document is required for use in a foreign country, it must be legalized.

Document Legalization: What and Why

The legalization consists of the certification of the legal capacity of the functionary that set his/her signature on the document (i.e. acts, copies and extracts) and also of the authenticity of the signature.

The aim is to guarantee the compliance of the translation, to check the certificate, to establish whether the document has been issued within the local laws and to verify the quality of the Functionary that set his/her signature. The destination country cannot verify the validity of the foreign document.
