The purpose of legalization is to enable notarial documents issued by one country to be accepted by the corresponding department of another country, in the light that the authenticity of the signature or the seal of the document could be questioned or the legal efficacy of such documents could well be affected. In doing so, the documents are taking effect beyond the home country's territory. In accordance with Vienna Convention on Consular Relations and relevant regulations, Chinese embassy and consulates in the UK accept applications for legalizations from within the consular districts.
