Full legalization procedures


Full legalization procedures

No bilateral or other agreements have been made with the country in which your documents were issued. Therefore, any documents or translations issued by your country must undergo full legalization procedures before they can be recognized in Austria.
The legalization confirmation must be affixed to every original document seperately.

Your documents must first be legalized in the issuing country (the final step in this process is submitting your documents to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the issuing country) before they can be legalized by the competent Austrian representative authority.

Procedure:

  1. Legalization by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the country in which the document was issued
  2. Legalization by the Austrian consular authorities (embassy or consulate)
