What is a Legalisation?

A Legalisation is the procedure in which the signature on a document is verified by an official body so that the document can be used legally in a country other than that in which the document was issued.

The procedure to legalise signatures can vary and is dependent on the type of document and the country in which it will be used.  Legalisations frequently require multiple steps and finding the correct combination and order of steps can be complicated and time consuming.
