Legalisation of Non-UK Documents
Modern life dictates that the country you grew up in isn’t always the one you studied, got married or had children in. But the legalisation of these documents has to take place in the country of origin. If you’re looking to move yourself or your family elsewhere but have documents issued from a number of different countries, where do you turn?
Vital Legalisation aims to take away the confusion and make it easy for you to legalise your documents for use anywhere in the world, no matter where they were issued.
If you’re taking up employment in a new country or making the move with a family member, you will likely need documents legalising to process your visa. The documents required can vary depending on the destination country and usage, and it can be difficult to find a definitive source of information on how to legalise each document within its country of origin. Did you know, for example, that the submission guidelines at the UAE Embassy in Canada differ from the requirements of the UAE Embassy in the UK? The world of legalisation is anything but a “one size fits all” process.
Owing to the rise in university fees within the UK over the past few years, many people are opting to study at universities abroad. It is also more popular than ever for couples to ensure the sun is out on their wedding day by marrying in an idyllic setting overseas. When it comes to applying for residency visas, this can suddenly feel like a headache due to the fact that all documents must be legalised in their country of origin. If you are a UK citizen who studied in Canada, got married in Italy and now wish to move to the UAE, would you know where to begin?
