This is a way by which foreign authorities check that the Notary’s signature and seal are those of a proper and qualified Notary using the Jersey Legalisation Office (Jersey Office) and thereafter the appropriate embassy, consulate or chamber of commerce.
In short the notary confirms the signature of the client and thereafter the Jersey Office confirms the notaries signature. Following that the appropriate embassy, consulate or chamber of commerce will confirm the signature appended by the official at the Jersey Office.
If the country receiving the document is a signatory to the Hague Convention; the Jersey Office can certify the Notary’s signature and seal (an Apostille) and so no further steps are required. This is invariably a quicker procedure than the standard legalisation route.
Each jurisdiction will have its own particular requirements in relation to receiving notarised documents. The jurisdiction may or may not require legalisation or Apostille at all, so it is always best to check.
