Purpose of Vietnam Embassy Legalisation

These days, more people are moving to Vietnam in search of permanent jobs. They have to go through certain processes, like being married in Vietnam and getting their work permit approved in India, in order for the Vietnamese consulate to legally accept their documents, guaranteeing their legal presence in Vietnam.

    Why are documents that are issued in Vietnam subject to authorization before being utilized there?

The formal procedure by which a diplomatic or consular organization certifies the legitimacy of the seal and final signature on a document that has been completed by the relevant agency is known as Vietnam Embassy Legalisation. Legalization by a consulate establishes a document’s validity in another country. Any documents used in Vietnam must first undergo consular legalization, and vice versa, as there is no agreement between Vietnam regarding the exemption from consular legalization.
