Report Card- Diploma Authentication Legalization also called Apostille or Attestation
In order for a Canadian High School Diploma or Report Card to be accepted in another country it must be authenticated and legalized. The validation process of authentication and legalization for education documents may also be called Attestation or Apostille in some countries but is recognized as the equivalent. Our authentication and legalization services can help you with the process. We have been helping people authenticate and legalize education documents for over 20 years for countries such as the Netherlands and Mexico where it is known as an Apostille or the UAE and Qatar where it is called UAE Legalisation or Qatar Legalization.
Canadian High School Report Cards, Diplomas and Elementary Report Cards may be required if you are continuing education in another country or if you are moving your family for work overseas.
Do you have the correct Report Card or Diploma for Authentication?
Whatever the reason, it is important to have the correct style of education document to ensure that it can be authenticated by Global Affairs Canada Authentication Services Section, legalized by the embassy, and is the correct type for the process that you are using it for in the foreign country. Let’s start with the first step document authentication which takes place at Global Affairs Canada here in Ottawa.
Global Affairs Canada High School Diploma-Report Card Authentication Rules
Global Affairs Canada requires all grade school educational documents to be signed by the Principal or Vice Principal. In addition, the spelling of their name and title must be provided (this is usually already on the document). Sometimes it maybe the case that it is signed by the provincial Ministry of Education, if so it can also be authenticated. Although the current processing time for Global Affairs Canada Authentication is 20 business days we can shorten this to 1 business day. See your document authentication options when you use our service.
Report Card Attestation-Legalization At The Embassy Consulate
The second step of Legalization takes place at the embassy consulate of the country where you are going to be using it. Most embassy consulates are located here in Ottawa and charge a fee to provide document legalization services. In addition, some have other requirements or processing times that change often. Our document legalization services will take care of all of that making sure it gets done correctly and meets your timeline. After your education document has been authenticated and legalized we can return it back to you or anywhere in the world it needs to go using one of our document shipping made easy solutions or using your preferred delivery method.
