New Form Required for China Legalization Requests

Chinese Flag.jpgThe Chinese Embassy has released a new version of the “G1” form. The Chinese Embassy and Consulates have long required the submission of a G-1 form with requests for the legalization of documents. The form requested information to identify the person or company making the request and the nature of the submitted documents.

There are a number of important changes that will affect the legalization process for China: 

  1. The new, two-page form requests some additional information, including the destination of the legalized documents.
  2. The new form requests information on the legal representative of the company for a company applicant.
  3. The new forms require original signatures of both the agent submitting the forms and a representative of the applicant
  4. The new version is a fillable adobe form, and the embassy will no longer accept forms that are filled in by hand.
