1. LEGALIZATION

All documents that are not issued by Vietnam Authorities need to be properly certified by Notary Public Offices in Canada and then authenticated by the Department of Foreign Affairs of Canada (DFATD). Only then will the documents be legalised in turn by the Embassy of Viet Nam in Canada. To request for legalization service, you need to submit the authenticated notarized copy of the original documents along with legalization request (which is a brief note requesting for the legalization service, and contact information including full name/company, address, and telephone number).

Following is a sample document which is properly notarized (by Notary public) and authenticated (by DFATD):
