International documents that are originated in one country, but are intended for use in another country require embassy legalization to be recognized by the legal system of the foreign country. Embassy legalization is the alternative method for authenticating a document that is utilized for countries that are Non-Hague Convention countries. These countries do not recognize the Apostille as a means to authenticating documents per the 1961 Hague Convention.
The embassy legalization process involves the affirmation of document validity and the documents are evaluated for original signatures, stamp prints, and seals, and are separately deemed as authentic components to support the validity of the paperwork.
