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 judgments.
- IRS Good Standing Certificates.
- Certificates of listing on a foreign exchange.
Understanding where, what and how to file in a foreign country is an extremely complex challenge because requirements, fees and political considerations vary all over the world.
