Legalization refers to the process of legalizing your documents with the embassy or consular of a foreign nation that is not a member of the Hague Convention; the said documents need to be legalized to be used in the target country.
Both personal and corporate documents can be legalized. Documents which need legalization services vary but the processes are more or less same, with some documents entailing extra steps during the process. More often than not, the document must be first notarized by a local public official, usually a notary public, before it is submitted for authentication. The embassy or consulate will authenticate the signature and seal on your document, and will then attach a stamped certificate to the request document. The processing time varies from country to country, and it is advisable to have a specialist to get your back!
