A Consulate or Embassy legalization is necessary if the country where you intend to use a document is not part of the Apostille Convention. A Consulate holds jurisdiction over a certain area of the United States and will only legalize a document that was issued or pertains to the geographical area within that jurisdiction. Some governments assign the legalization function exclusively to their embassies in Washington D.C., hence Embassy legalization.
