Legalise Document

The phrase “consular legality/apostille,” also known as document certifications, has lately gained popularity as a result of the increased need for foreign investment, international business, and relocation to other nations. Unless they are “consular legalized,” official papers and documents issued in one nation have no legal significance in another. In other words, in order for official papers and documents issued in other nations to be recognized and utilized in other countries, they must be certified at foreign countries’ Consulates in their home or acceptable state.

Global Link Incorporation will completely explain the entire consular legalization/apostillation procedure to help you to know if you need it.

1. Consular legalization in a foreign country

The consular legalization/apostillation only confirms stamps, signatures, and titles on papers and documents, not their contents or forms. As a result, in order to be recognized and utilized in other countries, international papers and documents must be consular legalized/apostilled at foreign countries’ Consulates in the country of issue or in the country of acceptance.

For example: In order for the British Virgin Islands’ (BVI) Certificate of Good Standing to be legally recognized in Singapore, it must be consular legalized by the Singaporean Consulate in the BVI, as Singapore recognises consular legalization/apostillation.


  1. Only soft copies of official papers (provided by the government of the consular legalization state) are necessary for information verification.
  2. Originals of official papers (issued by the governments of foreign nations) are required to verify their legitimacy.
  3. Other papers and documents are necessary for the stamps and signatures to be certified.

→ Consular legalization/apostillation is essentially a technique for certifying the legal value of foreign papers and documents, as well as authenticating the stamps, signatures, and titles on these documents.

2. Papers and documents must be consular legalized

You need to consular legalize documents for the following situations:

  • To register a bank account or set up a branch office in other countries, foreign enterprises must have legalized paperwork and documentation.
  • Businesses having international branch offices are required by their mother company’s governmental authorities or banks to present consular legalization paperwork of relevant offices.
  • Foreigners or students with foreign degrees wish to get their degrees consular validated for use in other countries.

Many foreigners may face difficulties as a result of “consular legalization,” which must begin in the nations where these official papers and documents are issued. Due to linguistic problems, not all document holders are well-versed in the order and method of consular legalization. This may result in unexpected and needless charges throughout the consular legalization procedure.
