What is legalization (authentication)?

Legalization is the official confirmation that a signature, seal or stamp appearing on a document is genuine. Having a document legalized by the Bureau of Consular Affairs (BOCA), Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of China (Taiwan) does not mean that the content of the document is accurate or that BOCA approves it.
