Updated August 4, 2021 – Global Affairs Canada has reported it is experiencing processing delays due to current conditions which will affect expected authentication times by 5 business days or more. We continue to meet with them daily and we will keep you updated on any processing time changes.

ALSC 5 Easy Steps

Our easy-to-follow process tells you what you need to do, allows you to set the turnaround time for completion and allows us, the experts, to take care of the rest.

1. We Verify Authentication

The first step for your document to be accepted internationally is to ensure it can be authenticated by Global Affairs Canada, which maybe called Apostille in some countries. Depending on the document they have specific requirements but not to worry we guarantee authentication. You simply send us a scan of your document and one of our friendly experts will review it to see if its ready to be authenticated.

2. We Confirm Embassy Requirements

The second step is the legalization of your document at the Embassy Consulate of the country where you will be using it. Most consulates have specific requirements that must be followed and charge a fee. Since requirements, fees and processing times change frequently using ALSC will prevent any delays for you. Our over 25 years of experience working with the diplomatic community allows us a distinct advantage assuring that your sensitive document is processed efficiently.

Choose Your Service Speed

3. You Choose the Service Speed

Now you are ready to choose from your personalized quote the authentication service that meets your budget and timeline, either our Standard 3 business day or Economy 10 business day. Most consulates have a standard processing time for legalization, but a few do offer quicker service. Our service fees depend on the number of documents, service speed and whether a consulate is located in or outside of Ottawa. Simply decide what service choices are best for you.
