Legalizations & other documents

Legalization is an administrative act whereby a foreign public document is validated, by verifying the authenticity of the signature on the document, and the capacity in which the signatory of the document has acted.

 Embassy of Spain in Abu Dhabi has a new system to get APPOINTMENTS for legalizations, NIE and residency visas (Long Term).
