Victoria Apostille Services – We Can Help!

If you have been asked to Apostille your documents, then do not worry, since the combination of Authentication and Legalization in Canada is the international equivalent. The difference between Apostille, Authentication and Legalization is that Apostille is a one-step process which makes your documents valid for use in all other countries that have signed the Hague Apostille Convention, whereas Authentication and Legalization is a two-step process that makes your documents valid for use only in the country at the Embassy Consulate where they were legalized.

Global Affairs Canada Authentication & Embassy Legalization

Most documents from Victoria, BC that we authenticate every day for our clients at Global Affairs Canada and then legalize at the various Embassies in Canada, are a BC Birth Certificate, BC Marriage Certificate and BC Death Certificate. These are also called Vital Statistics Documents as they are issued by the British Columbia Vital Statistics Department. You can order as many copies of BC Vital Statistics Documents as you require, which means that you can always order an original Birth Certificate, Marriage Certificate or Death Certificate. We can then help you with getting them ready for international use.

Other documents we process on a daily basis for use abroad are a University of Victoria Degree, British Columbia Incorporation documents, Police Check and Power of Attorney. No matter what the documents are, our specialists will be able to help you in getting them authenticated at Global Affairs Canada. We can get it done on the same day it arrives in our Ottawa headquarters, when using our quick Authentication Service, saving you valuable time compared to the Global Affairs Canada mail-in process. Our verification before you drop off your documents at the Victoria Service Center, guarantees that Global Affairs Canada will authenticate your documents, so you don’t have to worry and you can let us take care of the rest!

Our corporate document authentication and legalization specialists are the best in the country with a wide knowledge of the particular documents required for doing business in a foreign country. If your firm has been asked to provide a corporate document in a foreign country there is a good chance you will be asked to have it authenticated and legalized or what some countries will call Apostille. If you need assistance with this give us a call we can walk through the steps that are required to have your corporate document recognized in a foreign country.

You can do this process yourself, currently the processing time for Global Affairs Canada is a minimum of 15 business days to authenticate a document if you are using their mail in service. The advantage of using our in person service is that we can authenticate a document in 3 or 10 business days depending on how quickly you want it done to meet your timeline. Unlike Global Affairs Canada we keep you updated from start to finish to make sure you know what’s going on with your document. If dealing with Global Affairs Canada directly and there is any issue with your document it will take 15 business days before they can help you due to their work loads. As most of our clients need it done quickly and correctly our service is an easy choice.
