I hadn’t either until I needed to open a bank account in Portugal.
Apparently it’s a convention in which governments signed an agreement abolishing the need to legalize foreign documents.
This basically means that if you get a document legalized in one country, it therefore becomes legal in all other countries… countries which signed this agreement.
Unfortunately Thailand never signed this agreement, which means that if I need to get a foreign document legalized I have to schedule an appointment and make a trip to the Embassy the document originates.
I’m currently having to do this with Portuguese documents, giving my Lawyer there power of attorney.
I had to do this once already 2 months ago, but now there’s more documents to sign.
It’s kind of a pain, but I guess that’s what comes with going international with your business.
Which reminds me, have you started your business yet?
