Embassy Legalisation

When countries are not signatories to The La Hague Convention documents cannot be Apostilled but must be Authenticated and subsequently be certified by their local Embassy.

The normal process as for Apostille will be followed but a Authentication certificate will be issued instead of a Apostille. The documents look the same and are affixed to the document to be Authenticated in the same way.


• We prepare the documents.

• Obtain Authentication at relevant authorities.

• Lodge the document to the relevant embassy for Certification.

• Payment of relevant fees. ( Some embassy's only accept EFT while others only accept cash or bank guaranteed cheque's.

• Lead times are between 2 and 5 working days. It is important to note that foreign country embassy's have additional holidays as well as religious holidays in addition to South African Holidays.
