Legalisation makes documents suitable for use in another country. To legalise a document, the competent authorities sign and stamp it. Several different steps may be needed to complete the process.
The normal legalisation process:
- The document is certified by a notary public (usually the district court),
- It is then legalised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
- It will normally also need to be certified by the embassy/consulate that represents the country in which the document is to be used.
