What is document notarisation/legalisation?
Legalising or notarising your documents mean the same thing. It’s a legal process that proves your documents – like a degree or TEFL certification – are authentic.
Legalising your documents is essential because it guarantees your certifications are legally recognised and accepted by international schools.
Governments expect more than your passport as a supportive document for your visa. To make sure each document is legitimate, a notarisation or legalisation process takes place. Remember to budget the time and money to complete these steps before you begin to apply for your visa.
