Get a Consular Legalization right here in New York City
DocsBase Inc. doesn’t just provide the most affordable translation services in the city, we also can get your documents legalized for use abroad. If you need to use a document internationally, you will need to make sure that it is authenticated. The country in which you intend to use the document will determine what type of authentication you need. In most cases you will need an Apostille. Countries that are signatories to The Hague Convention accept documents with Apostilles. You can find a complete list of those countries here.
Located in New York? We can authenticate your document
When an Apostille is not sufficient, your document requires consular or embassy legalization. This can be a time and energy-consuming process. Let us handle it for you. Usually, it involves notarizing your document, submitting them to the secretary of state in the state it was issued, and then submitting everything to the Consulate where you intend to use it. A surprising large number of countries require this type of legalization and, often, the only embassy that will do it is located in Washington D.C. This is the case of Brazil. Despite having a consulate right here in New York, you cannot get consular legalization here. You must go to the main consulate in Washington D.C.
