Embassy Attestation Service
Documents which are being presented for use in a country which is not party to the Hague Convention (relating to apostilles) will often request further legalisation or attestation. This usually involves having an apostille attached to the document and then carrying out further legalisation through the embassy of that country.
This can add considerable complexity to the process as all embassies have different procedures and costs. It is also advisable to ask the person or authority that you intend to present the document to what their exact requirements are.
We have many years of experience in dealing with embassies of various countries so you can rely on us to provide the service of legalising documents for your particular destination country. As the procedure and cost varies from one embassy to another, and even from one document type to another, it is not possible to list all of the prices for our embassy legalisation services on this website.
