Document Legalisation Services (Pty) Ltd provides a document legalisation service and embassy attestation to assist you in legalising your South African documents for use overseas. An Apostille or Authentication Certificate is normally requested by foreign authorities and organisations so that the document can be used for official purposes outside of South Africa. It is also referred to as document legalisation, document authentication or document attestation. Many countries also ask that you get your documents attested by their South African embassy or Consulate.
We provide a complete document legalisation service for all South African documents
It may be the first time you have heard of an Apostille Certificate. An Apostille Certificate is only ever required if you have dealings outside of South Africa which involve some form of official paperwork. Apostilles are required for work, business, legal issues and personal matters. The most common requirements for an Apostille Certificate are overseas marriage, registering births, working or teaching abroad, foreign property purchases and business transactions or contracts.
This website has been produced to help you obtain the Apostille Certificate and stamp from the correct government office in an efficient manner and to provide you with more information. Please use this site as a resource but should you need to speak to an advisor do not hesitate to call us on our South African phone number 087 0010 733 or see our full contact details on our contact us page.
he first thing we do is check that your document is suitable for to be legalised with an apostille certificate. Not all documents are legalised in the same way. Your document may need to be certified by a Notary Public or an official certified copy may need to be ordered if not available. Other documents must be original versions and copies are not acceptable.
We will provide you with clear advice for your circumstances and assist you in obtaining correct documentation where necessary. We can also arrange for our solicitor to certify your documents to save you both time and money. Having checked your documents and legalised certified them as required we will personally attend the DIRCO or the High Court to arrange for the apostille to be issued.
Whilst your documents are in our possession we will ensure that they are handled with the care and attention they deserve. Once the apostille has been attached to your document we will return them to you by Postnet or a local or international courier.Why Choose Our Service?
