VisaCentral offers fast, easy, and secure processing of document legalization services.
Legalisation is the official process of document authentication granted by international governments. If your travels require the use of a Canada public document in an overseas country, you may find that the local authorities require it to be legalised before it can be used. Each country has its own legalisation requirements which are determined by the type of document being legalised and its intended use. Your document must be legalised by both the Government of Canada and in many cases, also at the embassy of the foreign country in order for it to be considered genuine.
Documents requiring legalisation services can include:
Birth, Marriage, and Divorce Certificates
Certificates of Incorporation
Certificate of No Impediment
Documents from British Overseas Territories
We will collect your documents and submit them to the appropriate government agency and embassy on your behalf. Print, fill out and sign the order form and return it to VisaCentral and we will begin processing your order.

The Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents is an international agreement that took place in The Hague, Netherlands in 1961. This agreement eliminated the need for additional legalisation requirements for document use between nations. The Hague Convention provides that an Apostille is the only form of legalisation required for travel between participating countries. An Apostille is an official stamp issued by the Government of Canada stating that your documents are genuine.
These countries are members of the Hague Convention
When carrying documents abroad, an Apostille stamp is required to ensure the authenticity of your official documents. Apostilles are issued by the United States government certifying your documents as genuine. VisaCentral can obtain an Apostille on your behalf. We will collect your documents and submit them to the appropriate government agency for authentication.
The following list of documents can receive an Apostille in Canada:
Association of Police Chief Officer
Certificates of Incorporation
Change of Name
Foreign Language Translations of Canada Documents
Powers of Attorney
To certify your documents with an Apostille, simply print, fill out and sign the order form and send it to VisaCentral. Your order will be processed as soon as it is received and you will be able to track its progress by using the Order Status tool on the VisaCentral website.
