Document Legalisation in Ireland

Certified Translation Services is a translation agency based in Dublin that provides services across the world. One of our most requested services is document legalisation. This service involves preparing a document issued in one country for acceptance and use in another. It is an essential service for expats, immigrants, people studying or working abroad, and individuals doing business in foreign countries. However, the process of legalisation can be complicated and time-consuming. The good news is that we are highly experienced in document legalisation and can assist you with this process.

Different Types of Document Legalisation in Ireland

It is essential to determine the type of legalisation you require for your document issued in Ireland. While our certified translation may be sufficient for use in some foreign countries, it may not always be the case. If you intend to use your document for official purposes such as submitting it to a government agency, you will most likely need another type of legalisation. There are two main types: Apostille and consular legalisation. Understanding the differences between these types of legalisation is crucial in ensuring that your document is legally recognised in the country you intend to use it.

Apostille vs Consular Legalisation - What's the difference?

Apostille is the easier of the two types of legalisation. Thanks to The Hague Convention, the requirements for using documents in a foreign country were simplified: among signatory countries only an apostille is required. Fortunately, the majority of countries are now signatories to the convention. Unfortunately, it is still not that easy to get an apostille. We can get the apostille for you. We do this type of service nearly every day, making bi-weekly trips to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

The other route is by consular legalisation. This is required for countries that are not signatories to The Hague Convention. This involves authentication first in Ireland and later in the country where the document is to be submitted. Going to two different countries just submit a document seems like a ridiculous thing to do and financially irresponsible. Let us cut down on your costs and headaches. We have a legalisation team that can get the consular legalisation for you.
