Question verification AND legalization of docs?

Hi! In Denmark our foreign ministry has this (paid) service of providing socalled "legalization" of documents as well as "verification" of docs.

The difference is, that legalization is an official proof (by stamp) that the document one is sending to an overseas official is a true document,it basically legalizes the signature of the doc a s being truthfull (and can thus not be used on for example payslips I suppose, since papers like this does not have signatures)

The "verification" is a stamp you get by officials to proof that the copies you are providing are TRUE copies. This would be what the OZ gov calls a certification.

Now, I am confused, cause I do not recall reading anything in DIACS booklet 6 (for GSM 175) about documents having to be legalized? It only states that copies of the documents have to be verified/certified?

Have people in here only sent certified copies but not legalized?

And, what about docs with no apparent signature, did you get someone to sign documents like this?

Thanks in advance!

I did read a reference to the legalisation you refer to M and I think it is more for stuff to do with legal documentation re contracts and such for businesses.

The Australian governement accepts that things like Birth and Marriage certificates, degrees from Universities etc. usually on special paper are valid documents and then sending a certified copy as they are is fine.
