This is a more involved and complex process than the truncated Apostille Certificate legalisation process.Legalising documents for international use can be a painful and time consuming process and a costly waste of money and time if not done correctly. It is important to hand over your documents for Apostille, authentication, notarization, attestation and embassy legalisation/authentication to an experienced professional.
Embassy Legalisation service (Non-Hague Countries). Legalised documents presented or used in a country which is not party to the Hague Convention are legalised in terms of an authentication and Embassy Legalisation process. This is a more involved process than the truncated Apostille legalisation process. This usually involves further legalisation through the embassy of that country.
