Algeria Embassy Legalisation

You are conducting business with a company in Algeria and they suddenly ask you to get the contracts and agreements attested. You have probably never heard of 'embassy attestation' and do not need the headache of trying to contact the embassy for help. That is where we help. We make document attestaiton as easy as possible.

Documents that are being submitted to Algeria require additional legalisation with the correct embassy. There are several steps to the process and documents must be submitted corretly.

Is Notarisation the Same as Legalisation?

In the service of legalising documents by apostille we sometimes hear people refer to the service as notarisation. This is often a simple mistake and customers simply need an apostille so that their documents are legalised for use in another country.

Legalisation of a document is the issue of an apostille so that the document may be used in an official capacity in another country. Once a document has the apostille, it has been ‘legalised’ for use in an overseas country that is a member of the Hague Convention.

apostille for non uk documents

Apostille Service for Non-UK Documents

It is possible for us to issue the apostille on documents that were not produced in the UK. However, it is important that you understand the following points.

If a document originates from a country that is a member of the Hague Convention then it is recommended that you get an apostille from that country. For example, if you require an apostille on a USA passport copy then we suggest you contact a USA apostille service provider.

Republic of Ireland Apostille Service

Documents originating from the Republic of Ireland must be legalised in the Republic of Ireland with an Irish apostille certificate. Irish documents will not be acceptable for a UK issued apostille.

Republic of Ireland issued government documents such as birth, death or marriage certificates, court or non impediment documents are to be legalised in the Republic of Ireland. Documents signed by a Republic of Ireland registered practicing solicitor or notary public must also be legalised with a Republic of Ireland issued apostille certificate.
