- All Embassies and Consulates in Australia require any document submitted to them for legalisation to be authenticated by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade by way of an Authentication Certificate (click link below to view sample copy) stamped onto or attached to the particular document to be legalised.
- Embassies and Consulates charge fees for legalising documents and these fees must be paid you. Embassies or Consulates have differing fees to each other. Many Embassies and Consulates even have different fees for different documents... for example for "private" documents or "commercial" documents (usually higher).
- Here is a list of popular Embassy / Consular Australian websites providing information about their fees payable for legalisations / attestations undertaken by them...
- If unsure of an Embassy / Consular fee payable, we invite you to contact our office by email on firstname.lastname@example.org to ascertain current Embassy or Consulate fees payable in your particular case and then you can complete the payment option in the Form below.
- Some foreign countries do not have Embassies/Consulates in Australia and for those that don’t, our standard legalisation fee of $350.00 per document does not apply as additional services may be required including overseas couriering to and from.
Furthermore, some Embassies/Consulates located in Australia have burdensome, time consuming requirements or constraints that require extra time, effort and expense and for those countries also, our standard fee to legalise of $350.00 per document does not apply. (These countries include Peoples' Republic of China, Qatar, and India).
