Often times, you will be required to legalise your Spain documents or have them authenticated, for official use in and outside of Spain. The process of document authentication is observed by international governments and requires that Spanish documents have to be legalised for use abroad. Depending on the document’s intended use and which country it will be used in, there might be a few different legalisation requirements that your documents will have to go through.
Spain Documents Legalisation Services Offered
Apostille: Apostilles are stamps which ensure the authenticity of official documents. Apostilles are issued by the Legalisations Section of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation (Ministerio de Asuntos Exteriores) in order to verify that documents are genuine and comply with the laws of the Apostille Convention. Learn more about apostilles for Spain documents here.
Police Clearance Certificate: Spanish nationals that wish to apply for an immigration process or even a visa abroad will be required to produce a valid Good Conduct Certificate or Certificado de Antecedentes Penales. Learn more about how we can help you obtain your certificate by reading more in our Spain Police Clearance section.
Embassy Attestations: Whenever documents have to be authenticated for use in another country and that country does not belong to the Apostille Convention, you will be required to submit your documents for Embassy Attestation services.
