Additional Services

Some of our clients require a Notary before Authentication or would like to keep their original document so they request us to make a notarized copy. If this is you simply choose our Notary services. Translation services are required if your document contains a language other than English or French or if you need it translated to the foreign language. If this is you simply send us a scan of the document. We will send you a quote which is determined on a per word basis. If you want a scan of the official stamps on your Authenticated & Legalized document sent to you by email let us know. Make sure if requesting Notary or Digital Copies you choose the number you require.

Embassy Legalization Fee

The Embassy charges a fee to legalize your document which varies per country and sometimes by the type of document. To make payment easier and to save our clients time, if required in secured funds a standard $10 money order fee will be added to the legalization fee. With some countries we will need to confirm the fee upon confirmation of your order. For others simply select the amount of fees for the number of documents you need legalized. If you do not see your country listed choose the world icon. Please note that some fees are estimated as they change often.

Embassy Legalization Service

Document legalization at the embassy consulate is the second step. Most will be able to legalize their document at an embassy in Ottawa. Others, due to government rules, will need to legalize their document at an embassy located outside of Ottawa. Country's that require outside Ottawa embassy legalization include: Argentina, Bahrain, Brazil, El Salvador, Germany, Italy, Oman, Spain. For the UAE it will depend where your document was issued. The UAE Toronto consulate will only process documents from Toronto and Southern Ontario, while the UAE Embassy Ottawa will legalize documents issued from the rest of Ontario and all other provinces. Select the legalization service that applies to the country where you will be using your document. The estimated legalization processing time is in addition to the authentication time and will be provided upon the confirmation of your order as it varies per country and changes often. Make sure the number of documents you select for Legalization matches the amount of documents you need Authenticated.
