There are two different types of authentications:

APOSTILLE: It is required for all types of documents that you are planning to use in foreign countries. The apostille process ensures that your document(s) will be recognized as legitimate in all participating countries that are party to the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents. (See participating countries below). Normally, Travel Visa Pro does not assist with apostille services for Hague countries.

LEGALIZATION: For documents that are to be used in countries which have not signed Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents, a different chain of authentication is applied that eventually includes legalization by the appropriate consulate.
