Principle and conditions
Legalisation of a signature is used to authenticate a signature on private documents (i.e. documents that are not written and signed in the presence of a notary) by an official signature.
For example, you can request a signature to be legalised for: certificates for importing or exporting vehicles, adoption documents, documents relating to funerals, notaries' bills of sale, power of attorney, leases, etc.
You must sign the document in the presence of an official and must show proof of identity. A legalised signature costs 5 € per document.
