Document Authentication and Legalization

Man Signing

When you need a document to be recognized in another country, it has to go through a process called “authentication” and “legalization”. The entire process centers on certifying that the official signature(s) on the document are legitimate. The term legalization refers to a document being issued with the correct stamps or certificates in order to be recognized in another country.
