CIBTvisas offers fast, easy, and secure processing of document legalisation services

Legalisation is an official process of document authentication granted by international governments. If your travels require the use of an Australian public document in an overseas country you may find that the local authorities require it to be legalised before it can be used. There are two types of authentication: an Apostille and a Certificate of Authentication. Each country has its own legalisation requirements determined by the type of document being legalised and its intended use.

Documents that may require legalisation include:

  • Birth and Marriage Certificates
  • AFP/State Police Checks
  • Company Registration Certificates
  • Power of Attorney
  • Education Certificates
  • Translations

Legalisation is a multi-step process. Your document must be legalised by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT),  and by the Embassy of the destination country for it to be considered genuine and valid.

We can help. Contact our legalisation experts at to begin a consultation. We will take the time to understand your legalisation needs and work with you step-by-step to ensure you get the right documents in a timely fashion. Our service covers all destinations around the world.
