Legalization

LEGALIZATION

We offer the full set of services

As per the Hague Convention the translation of certain documents requires legalization by affixing an apostille by the statutory institution in charge. Apostille contains information on ten points: the country the document originates from, the authority it is issued by, the date and etc. Different types of documents require apostilles that might be applied by different authorities such as: the Directorate “Consular Relations” at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Justice or the Ministry of Education and Science.

Translation of the documents subject to legalization is performed by a sworn in translator who certifies the correctness of the translation. Verification and validation of the completed translation is performed by the Directorate “Consular Relations” at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

A translated document is legally valid ONLY if the translation is performed by a translation agency authorized by the Directorate “Consular Relations” at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Our legalization services include the following:

  • Certifying the original document by the relevant authority whose stamp is required by the Directorate “Consular Relations” at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs;
  • Translation of the document on our letter headed form (as a licensed agency)  by a sworn in translator
  • Legalization of the document by the Directorate “Consular Relations” at the MFA.
