Apostille & Legalisation

Legalisation is the authentication by the embassy or consulate, located in the country of the notary public, of the country in which the document is to be used, ie it is the official attestation of the origins of a document. Therefore, a document executed in Singapore for use in Italy would be legalised by the Embassy of Italy in Singapore and a document executed in Italy for use in Singapore would be legalised by the Singapore Embassy in Italy.
