Legalization of documents

Legalization is a form of document authentication that is sometimes required by foreign governments in order to cross their borders. If you plan to use a U.S., UK, or India issued document while traveling overseas, authorities may necessitate that it be legalized in order to be considered valid. All countries have different legalization requirements. Contact VisaHQ if you have any questions regarding your situation.

Legalization requires multiple steps

Document legalization frequently requires the involvement of multiple entities. You will probably have to contact your local or state government, the U.S. government, and your destination country’s Embassy.
