Legalise a document in English in Brussels

Question

Hello,

I have a document in English destined for the UK that need to be legalised in Brussels (the signature)

I was informed the Commune is not doing that and I need to go to the Ministry of whatever but the next appointment is ... etc

Do you know whether a lawyer or anyone else can do that?

Thanks

Ask the people in the UK what is acceptable to them.
Generally there will be a list of options including, for instance, a doctor, your bank etc.

Agree with KASSEISTAMPER, ask the person for whom it is for to specify who can legalize it. Alternatively, try the consular service of your embassy, or even your bank.

In the past, I have "legalized" documents in English for friends in my capacity as a company director. With a fancy signature and a company stamp you can make any document look "offical".

I have seen tons of documents in which the signatures were legalized, and in all cases it was by a notary, followed by an apostille at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Nevertheless, it might be useful to follow KASSEISTAMPER's advice of calling the UK first.

I've done this before. Only the Belgian Foreign Ministry can legalise Belgian documents with the apostille. See here: https://diplomatie.belgium.be/en/services/legalisation_of_documents

Before they can do it, it may however be necessary for the document to be first signed or certified by another person or body. This depends on the type of document to be legalised. More information here: https://diplomatie.belgium.be/en/services/legalisation_of_documents/sear...
