1. We Verify Authentication

The help have your document accepted internationally we first need to ensure it can be authenticated at Global Affairs Canada in Ottawa, which maybe called Apostille in some countries. Depending on the type of document they have specific requirements but not to worry we guarantee authentication.

2. We Confirm Embassy Requirements

The second step is the legalization of your document at the Embassy Consulate which maybe called attestation in other countries. Most consulates have specific requirements that must be followed and will charge a fee. Since requirements, fees and processing times change frequently using our expert embassy legalization service will prevent any delays for you.

Most embassies have a standard processing time for document legalization but a few do offer quicker service. Simply decide what service choices are best for you. Fees depend on how many documents, service speeds and whether a consulate is located in or outside of Ottawa. Now you are ready for the authentication and legalization process.
