1. There are different alternatives to have a signature legalized on a contract or other official documents, therefore, it is advisable to contact first the relevant office in Hungary concerning the preferred and accepted method prior to submit a request.

     

    LEGALIZATION OF SIGNATURE BY A HUNGARIAN CONSULAR OFFICIAL

    In order to legalize your signature, you need to come in person, present a valid identification document with photo (such as your passport, driver's license or photocard) and sign the document in front of the consul. Legalization of a signature means the consul establishes the veracity of the signature only, and not the content of the document, for which the Consular Section bears NO responsibility. The document will have to be drawn up by yourself in advance. We are unable to assist you in drawing up or typing out the document. In order to avoid any spelling errors in your documents we kindly recommend our clients to ensure their IDs include the preferred names, such as anglicised or Hungarian names with dots, full names or short names.

    As long as you sign in the name of a company (or other organisation) you have to present the Certificate of incorporation issued not earlier than 30 days before.

    Fees must be paid per signature per person.

    Our honorary consuls are authorized to legalize signatures.
