Embassy or Consulate Legalization

Countries that are not part of the Hague Convention require your document to be passed through their embassy to be approved. The legalization process can take several paths, the path it take depends on the type of document that you have. Locally created documents such as a birth certificate must be verified by the issuing authority, a personal documents just as a Power of Attorney (POA) requires  the document  to be notarized first, once notarized  the notary signature must be verified by the County Clerk (this step is not necessary in every state), then  the County Clerk signature is verified by the Secretary Of State. In some states the notary public's signature can be verified directly by the Secretary Of State. Once the issuing authority for your state (i.e., Secretary of State, or the Department of Treasure, or Superior Court) has verified the Notary Public signature or the County Clerk Signature the issuing authority will issued a Certification of Authority Letter, (this is sometime mistakenly called an Apostille but the Apostille is only issued for documents going to Hague Convention countries). Once your document has received a State level, your document is ready to be taken to a Consulate or Embassy. Notary & Apostille Service will take your your document through the complete Legalization process including a trip to the consulate or embassy.
If you have a Federally issued document, it must be process by the issuing authority in Washington, DC.

How long is the legalization process

Because the Embassy Legalization process requires more procedural steps to process a document, it takes much longer to complete and tends be more expensive because of the number of additional agencies that must provide their stamp or certification of authority.

Many of the Embassies in New York City do not process documents for legalization, therefore your document will be sent to Washington, DC for special courier service to complete the legalization. This special courier service is necessary if you want your document back within the shortest time frame. Other arrangements can be made if you do not require this expedited service. Each document is different, and each embassy has it's own set time to process your document, and may require additional time for traveling between locations to get the document legalized.

If you are in a rush for your documents I strongly recommend you use our Expedited service to & from Washington DC. By using this method it will shorten your process time by at least 5 business day. Just remember embassy times vary and my be closed for holidays that are celebrated in that country. To see average time it take to process a documents for that country's embassy take a look at the column labled "Time Required at Consulate/Embassy" in the table above.
