makes documents suitable for use in the Czech Republic. To legalize a document, the competent authorities sign and stamp it. Several different steps are needed to complete the process.


What we legalize?

Documents that can be superlegalized include civil status documents, court orders, diplomas and any other document that is issued by Egyptian/ Sudanese entities only. We (super) legalize ORIGINALS ONLY and we do not accept copies or verified copies.

In case the document contains more than one separate page then it should be all connected together and sealed by Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs or legalization stamp and signature should be applied on each separate page.

Competent authorities in Egypt checks that the document has been signed by the correct authority. This is usually the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. After approval, a stamp or sticker is placed on the document. This shows the Czech authorities that the document has been issued by a competent authorities in Egypt.
