How do I Legalise a document through High Court Authentication?

The document is signed, stamped, sealed, and attested by our Notary Public. We then present the document and attestation to the High Court. The High Court will then attach an Authentication or Apostille Certificate (depending on the destination country), which serves to confirm the Notary Public’s signature.
Apart from authentication been done by the High Court, documents must be presented at DIRCO (Legalisation Section at the Department of International Relations and Cooperation). DIRCO will place a further authentication on the document attesting to the veracity of the signature of the High Court Official.
Some countries require further legalisation by means of Embassy Attestation. Also see our Embassy Attestation Page.
