BRAZIL – new legalisation requirements

Monday, 25 July, 2016

As from 14th August 2016, documents for Brazil will no longer need consular legalisation – just an FCO apostille. This will considerably reduce the time taken to complete the formalities for documents heading to Brazil, and reduce the cost. It will bring Brazil in line with over 100 countries that are signatories to the 1961 Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents.
