INTERNATIONAL LEGALIZATION

Extra Steps for International Documents

When you’re using an official document overseas, or a foreign document in the U.S., you’ll have to officially verify the document’s certifications and seals. 

Verification steps vary everywhere, but generally include simple government agency authentication; legalization, which requires multiple-agency verification; and Apostille Certificates, a streamlined verification attachment that’s accepted by more than 110 countries.

Documents often requiring legalization include:

  • Birth, death and marriage certificates
  • Corporate documents
  • Notarized contracts
  • Trademark assignments
  • Court judgements
  • IRS Good Standing Certificates
  • Certificates of listing on a foreign exchange

Get a simpler solution, from pricing to processing. Up to four documents are verified with the same authority at no additional charge, by a team that understands the process and international embassy quirks.
