When you are planning an immigration, you need to follow a detailed process of legalization. This procedure entails various levels of certifications across the government departments and ministries in the country of origin and destination country. The documents should obtain authentication certificates at these levels to prove their validity. These legal requirements usually differ according to the laws of each country. The Embassy officials may ask you for additional certifications in some cases. Using this procedure, you need attestation for your personal, educational, and non-educational documents.
