*Legalization/Verification Certificate

The legalization is necessary to guarantee a document authenticity. Documents should be legalized in the country whose educational system the title refers to*. You should therefore verify which is the authority responsible for the legalization.

If the country where the qualification was obtained has adhered to the Hague Convention (5 October, 1961), the so-called Hague Apostille can be applied to the title itself.

The legalization is not needed in case the title is obtained in one of the following countries and refers to the National education system of the same country: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, , Ireland. The European Bac does not need the legalization too.

*If, for example, you studied in Poland but your high school title refers to the US education system, you should ask for the legalization of the title in the US.

Instead of the legalization. Students can ask for the CIMEA Verification Ceirtificate here: https://cimea.diplo-me.eu/naba/#/auth/login

**Translation
