Generally, the legalisation process is 3 steps:
1. Certification – this is when a UK solicitor or notary signs a document and declares if it is an original or true copy of an original
2. Apostille – this step involves the UK Foreign Office as they authenticate a UK document for use in a foreign country
3. Embassy Legalisation – the last step is to have the document presented to the Kuwait Embassy in London whereby an official will attest the document.
This is the full process of having a UK document legalised for use in Kuwait.

Document legalisation may be required by you from an official in Kuwait, often an employer. The main purpose of this is to authenticate UK documents to be valid in Kuwait. For example, your employer in Kuwait may ask you to have your degree legalised so it is recognised in Kuwait. Another example could be if you are looking to move to Kuwait with your family; you may need to have the birth certificates of your children legalised along with your marriage certificate.

The legalisation of documents is the process of authenticating that a document has been issued in the UK. This is then further attested by the Kuwaiti embassy to enable the document to be recognised in Kuwait.
