Embassy legalisation is an alternative method of authenticating a document, used for countries that are not members of the Hague Convention such as UAE or Angola. Such countries do not accept or recognize an apostille as a certificate of authenticity for public documents. Instead, the embassy, consular or diplomatic representative of the country i.e., UAE, Angola in these countries normally deals with the legalisation and attestation of documents.
In most cases an embassy legalisation will require the document to be translated then notarised/ (Depending upon country of issuance), followed by authentication from the foreign affairs office i.e. Dirco and finally the embassy of the UAE or Angola in the country of origin to which the document will be sent.
