Vietnam is a vibrant Southeast Asian country with a thriving economy and a rich culture. If you intend to study, work or conduct business in Vietnam, you need to make sure that all your documents are in order. In most situations, your documents will need to be legalised by the Vietnamese embassy. We will offer you with the most recent information on Vietnam embassy legalisation from the UK.
Vietnam Embassy Legalisation
Legalisation is the process of getting your documents authenticated by the issuing country to ensure that your documents are genuine and have been supplied correctly. Your documents will be reviewed and authenticated by the embassy to confirm whether they can be used in Vietnam. Once the embassy has determined that your documents are valid, they will be attested with an official stamp or seal
Types of Documents
- Commercial Documents: These include Certificate of Incorporation, Certificate of Registration, name change and other business documents.
- Educational Documents: These include high school certificates, GCSE, A-Level certificates, degrees, diplomas, and transcripts.
- Legal Documents: An affidavit, a power of attorney, and a contract are examples of legal documents.
- Personal Documents: These include experience letters, birth certificates, marriage certificates, and police clearance certificates.
These are a few examples of documents that may be required when moving to Vietnam. It should be noted that employers or officials involved in your move to Vietnam will provide you with a list of necessary documents.
Vietnam Embassy Legalisation Process
The embassy legalisation process varies based on the country the documents were issued in. The general procedure for the UK, however, is as follows:
Certification/Notarisation: A solicitor or notary public will need to certify the authenticity of a document. In most cases, this is a prerequisite to legalising a document. Certain documents such as birth certificates and police ACRO certificates will not require certification as they are generally signed by an official.
Apostille Stamp: the second stage involves presenting the document to the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office to obtain the Apostille stamp. The stamp is essentially a certificate to authenticate a document has been issued in the UK and that it is a genuine document. The Apostille is usually affixed to the reverse side of the document to prevent details being obscured on your document.
Embassy Legalisation: the document is finally submitted for legalisation to the Vietnamese Embassy in order to finalise the attestation procedure. This is carried out with a stamp and seal from the embassy officials to guarantee the authenticity of the document and to enable its use in Vietnam.
