Apostille and legalization are processes used to validate the authenticity of documents for international use, and the specific method depends on the legal agreements and practices of the countries involved. In most cases, documents to be used overseas have to be proven authentic through means of either an "Apostille" or legalization. An Apostille is a certificate of authenticity issued by a designated authority in a contracting state to the Hague Convention on Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents of 5th October 1961 ("Apostille Convention").

Such documents need to be legalized before submitting to the foreign authorities, mainly foreign embassies. LIG Article contributed by:
