Embassy Legalization

If your public documents require authentication for recognition in a country not covered by The Hague Convention, your document will need to go through the process of Embassy Legalization.

This is a multi-tiered process that requires the document to be authenticated by the originating states' Office of the Secretary of State, the U.S. Department of State and the corresponding embassy.

This process of authenticating or certifying the public document will ensure foreign legal systems recognize the authenticity with full legal effect.
