Hungarian citizens that wish to travel and reside abroad might have to get their official public documents authenticated before they can be used outside of Hungary. International governments are tasked with authenticating documents through a process called legalisation, and depending on the documents you want to use outside of Hungary and what the destination country is, these processes can be both complicated and time-consuming. Here at Evergration, we offer a wide range of document legalisation services to help minimise the timeframe for our clients.
