Legalization is a process of authenticating the documents issued in one country and intended for use in another country in order to be recognized as valid in foreign country.
HRD attestation – Educational document attestation by the respective HRD in each state
Document Apostille services – Apostilles authenticate the seals and signatures of officials on public documents such as birth certificates, court orders, or any other document issued by a public authority so that they can be recognized in foreign countries
The documents are first verified and authenticated by respective State Government from where the document is issued and then authenticated by Ministry of External Affairs. After MEA authentication, it is submitted to the Embassy / Consulate for final attestation.
