What is document legalization?

Legalization is the official process of certifying a document so that it is recognized by the legal system of a foreign country. If you or your business requires the use of a document abroad, local authorities must legalize it before considering it valid. Each country has its own legalization requirements determined by the type of document that is legalized and its intended use.

We are your trusted legal document assistant, offering efficient, safe, and fast document legalization services. We additionally offer apostilles for member countries of the HAGUE Convention and consular legalization for countries that are not members of the convention. The authentication of a document is mandatory when the document is to be used outside of its country of origin. To make the document valid abroad, it must follow a specified legalization process according to the type of document and the country of destination. At LEX, we determine the correct path for the legalization of documents and complete the process of legalization on behalf of our clients.
