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.

  • Legalisation verifies that:

    • The signature on the document is genuine.
    • The person who has signed the document is a public official who is authorised to sign the document concerned (i.e. the signature of a government authorised translator or similar is not sufficient).
    • The official stamp of the government agency that has issued the document is genuine.

    The Royal Thai Embassy does NOT verify or entail:

    • Any validation of the accuracy of the content of the document.
    • A signature of a foreigner.

The normal legalisation process:

  1. The document is certified by a notary public (usually the district court),
  2. It is then legalised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
  3. It will normally also need to be certified by the embassy/consulate that represents the country in which the document is to be used.
