Attestation, Apostille, Authentication and Legalisation of Documents for Overseas Work opportunities Revised November 24, 2015 14:02

Anderson Consulting offers a service that assists those to get their documents attested in a few days. When applying for work opportunities in foreign Countries potential employers may request that key documents such as: Marriage certificates, Degrees or Trade Certificates,Professional Memberships (Teaching, Medical, Accountants and Engineers) and other documents may need to have an Apostille Certificate (where countries are party to The Hague Convention) or a Certificate of Authentication (where countries are not party to The Hague Convention). 

Should the country not be part of the Hague convention then the document will also need to be  legalized by that Country’s (UAE etc) embassy.The United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Qatar are examples of countries that do not form part of the Hague Convention. An  Apostille document (Mainly EU and US) is a shorter process and does not require further legalization at a country’s embassy.
