Legalisation is the certification of an official document by a state chancellery. It’s also called supplementary attestation. Legalisation (as opposed to the apostille) is required for countries outside Switzerland that are NOT part of the Hague Agreement. Normally, the document owner must also go to the embassy in person with the legalisation and have it confirmed on site.

An apostille is required for official documents which, in addition to the usual notarisation, must also be certified by a state chancellery. This is also known as supplementary attestation. An apostille certificate is required for countries outside Switzerland that are part of the Hague Agreement.

It is best to clarify with the authorities of your destination country what type of certification you need for your documents. As a rule, official documents require notarisation. For countries that are part of the Hague Agreement, an apostille is also required; for countries that are not part of the Hague Agreement, you also need legalisation.
