Authentication

Those going to live in other countries from their country, may be asked to show documents from their country of origin, such as a birth or marriage certificate. Because these documents do not always
meet the legal requirements of the countries where the person wants to live, some of them first require authentication (legalization) to prove the document has been issued by an authorized person and that the signature on the document does in fact belong to this person. It is therefore advisable to have certain documents authenticated before you go to other country for living with the purpose of job / business etc.Whether authentication is necessary depends on the country you come from. Some countries have made agreements with each other about this. This means that you may be eligible to undergo accelerated proceedings or even that your documents do not need to be authenticated. More information about the proceedings in question are available at the Regional Authentication Departments / general Administrative Departments of the concerned states of the countries. .
