What is Attestation of documents?

It is the process used to attest to the Legality and Authenticity of document to be accepted  outside of South Africa and is commonly known as the Legalisation process.

Authentication Seal  is affixed by Competent Authorities designated by the government .The countries whom have not signed the Apostille Convention came to a agreement on a protocol to confirm the authenticity of documents by firstly Authentication by the country of origin and Attestation and secondly Attested by the target country local Embassy.

In South Africa the Department of International Relations and Co-Operation also known as DIRCO or formerly known as the Department of Foreign Relations are the administrators of this process. DIRCO has a Data base of all the authorised signatories of official documents in South Africa. This means that if a document is signed by a official whom signature is registered the document is deemed as a legal document. The Type of document and the target country dictates the legalisation process.

All original documents are Authenticated by the DIRCO while Notary Copies, Official Translations and Divorce Decrees are Authenticated by the relevant High Court.

Certain documents must first be Authenticated by the relevant Authorities before they can be Authenticated by DIRCO .
