La legalización es un acto administrativo por el que se otorga validez a un documento público extranjero, comprobando la autenticidad de la firma puesta en un documento y la calidad en que la autoridad firmante del documento ha actuado.
A no ser que exista algún instrumento jurídico que exima de esa obligación, todo documento público extranjero debe ser legalizado para tener validez en España y todo documento público español requiere ser legalizado para ser válido en el extranjero.
