Most common documents are certificates of civil status (birth/marriage/death certificates), diplomas, police clearance certificate and affidavits.

These documents only require a single legalisation (Apostille) issued by the authorised offices of the Indian Ministry of External Affairs.

Additional legalisation by the Embassy / Consulate General of Belgium is no longer required for those documents.
