What is the best way to legalise my documents?

If you are seeking to pass official documents between countries, you will need to have the papers translated and legalised.

If you follow a proper legalisation method, such as our own apostille legalisation services, your documents should be accepted by the recipient body without the need for further proof of the authenticity of the stamps or seals.

However, you should be aware that not all countries have signed up to the Apostille Convention, meaning that further authentication may be required when you send documents to these countries. Before you send your documents abroad, you should make sure that your recipient country has accepted the Apostille certification.
