Preparing your documents for Dominican citizenship with DocsBase
In order to being your application you will need both your parents’ birth certificates and your own. Because your parents’ were issued in the DR, they will not need translated, however, yours will require legalization and translation. It must be apostilled by the secretary of state or in the in the case of New York city, the New York Department of State. The birth certificate is the most difficult document to get apostilled: before you can take it to the DOS, you need to present a letter of exemplification to the New York City County Clerk. Only once that has been authenticated can you proceed with the apostille. When it comes to the translation, we can translate your birth certificate in 24 hours. If you are in urgent need of the translation, we can even do it the same day, but that service will cost slightly more. In certain cases, the DR consulate may ask that the translation be apostilled as well. We can apostille the translation at a reduced rate if you are getting the original apostilled with our company.
If you are looking for document legalization and translation for documents destined to or from the Dominican Republic, we are your solution. Because of the substantial Dominican population in New York City, we have done lots of work for the Dominican diaspora and we consider ourselves experts when it comes to the Dominican Republic. We also have bi-lingual staff who speak Spanish and English and can answer any questions you might have. Contact us today!
