Section 1: Cuba Embassy London Legalization UK
The second most populous after Hispaniola and the largest island in the Caribbean, Cuba consists of the main island of Cuba, the Isla de la Juventud, and several archipelagos. The country’s planned economy consists mainly of state-run businesses.
When travelling to Cuba, you might need to submit certain personal and professional documents. However, before being accepted by Cuban authorities, these documents will need to be attested by the Cuba embassy in your home country. For UK nationals, prior to legalisation by the Cuba embassy in London, the documents will require an apostille from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) of the UK.
This means that there are several steps to document attestation. This is why it is easier to hire the services of an experienced and reliable legalisation firm, like Rapid Legalisation Services, to complete the process on your behalf. However, it is still important to know how to get Cuba Embassy attestation.
