4.2.1. Legalisation of signatures

There are two ways to have your signature legalised by the Consular Section of the Embassy of Hungary in New Delhi:
• you sign the document in the presence of the consul; or
• you recognise the signature on the document as yours in the presence of the Consul.

Legalisation 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 some cases, the legalised documents are returned via post within 10 calendar days. Information on the expected timeline can be provided at the time of the application. 


To schedule an appointment please write a request letter to the consulate.del@mfa.gov.hu  

The applicant should appear in person at the Consulate and should present his/her original valid passport, ID card. Please note that your application will be rejected if you fail to present one of these documents.
