When going abroad, formal documentation is essential for proving your identity and confirming your credentials. Just bringing these documents along with you, however, is not always enough. You must be able to demonstrate that those documents are completely authentic and prepared to all of the specifications of the law. Attestation of documents is the process that verifies you executed each document legally and that it is an authentic and genuine copy so the government of the country you are visiting knows it and the information contained within are real.
The documents you need to bring with you depends on where you are going and why. A brief visit, for example, may only require basic identification papers. If you are moving to another country, visiting for a longer period, or going to study abroad, however, you need more extensive documentation to verify your identity, marriage, legal relationships, and education.
