Authentication of a signature
Authentication of a signature means that the consul checks the identity of the signatory person but does not take responsibility for the content of the document. The document should be prepared by the applicant in advance. The Consulate is not entitled to draw up the document. In order to avoid any inconvenience you are kindly requested to inform the consulate in advance on the number of the documents to be signed.
The applicant should appear in person at the Consulate and should present his/her valid passport or identity card. Please note that your application will be rejected if you fail to present one of these documents.
In case you would like to sign on behalf of a company (or other organisation) you should present the certificate of incorporation of the company (which is registered in Hungary or in Croatia). Certificate of incorporation shall have been issued within the previous 30 days.
The Consulate legalises the copy of an original document, upon presentation of the original document.
You are supposed to submit your application for legalisation in person (by appointment). The applicant should appear in person at the Consulate and should present his/her valid passport or identity card.
