Some foreign delegates in Tokyo legalize a document issued in Japan for the use in their own country. This is often called consul authentication or /ryo-ji-ni-n-sho/ in Japanese.
In most cases, Japan MOFA authentication is required before you apply for Consul Authentication.
If you are required to get a document legalized and the country where you will use the document is not a signatory country of the Hague Convention, you need to get a consul authentication on a document.
