Trust Apostille International to handle your embassy legalization and apostille needs with professionalism and precision.
Embassy legalization is a crucial step in ensuring that your documents are accepted and recognized by foreign governments, particularly in nations that are not signatories to the 1961 Hague Convention Treaty. This process acts as a seal of approval, certifying the authenticity and legality of your documents, making them valid for use at any consulate or embassy and in non-Hague Convention countries.
Whether you’re planning to work, study, marry, or conduct business abroad, embassy legalization opens doors for you. It allows you to present your U.S.-issued documents with confidence, proving their validity and integrity in the eyes of foreign authorities. However, if your destination falls under the umbrella of the 1961 Hague Convention Treaty, you will require apostille services to authenticate your documents, ensuring their hassle-free acceptance in those countries. Understanding the nuances of embassy legalization and apostille services is essential for a seamless international experience.
We provide embassy legalization services for New York and Washington, D.C. Embassies. Our services for New York Embassies take 3–5 business days, while our services for Washington, D.C. Embassies take 4–7 business days.
In the state of New York, the process of embassy legalization involves obtaining an apostille from the New York Secretary of State for both public and private documents. Birth and death records, specifically in the boroughs of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island, must carry the signature of the City Registrar and include a letter of exemplification.
Additionally, documents bearing the signature of the Director of Vital Records in New York State are considered valid for this purpose. Marriage certificates issued by the city must be certified with the original signature and stamp of the City Clerk on the back. Furthermore, all birth, death, marriage, and divorce records must originate from the New York Department of Health or a local registrar or town clerk in the location where the event occurred.
When dealing with embassy legalization in Washington, D.C., birth, death, and marriage certificates bearing an original signature are eligible for apostillation by the Washington, D.C. Secretary of State. It’s important to note that the notary and apostille must be issued from the same state. Therefore, in situations where an original document is not available for notarization and apostille in Washington, D.C., a scanned photocopy of the original document can be notarized and apostilled in New York City. Certified copies of original documents can also be obtained from Washington, D.C.’s Vital Records Division for the embassy legalization process.
Understanding these specific requirements is crucial for a successful document legalization journey.
