Document Legalization for Canadian Documents with DocsBase

Get your Canadian documents legalized for use abroad without leaving New York

The only way to legalize Canadian documents for use abroad is through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Canada (DFAIT) located in Ottawa. DocsBase Inc in New York offers the most affordable document legalization service for Canadian documents. How do we do this? We have an office in Ottawa that makes daily visits to the DFAIT. Normally, if you were to mail a document to the DFAIT to get legalized, it would take around 25 days plus shipping there and back. Essentially, it is impossible to do in under a month! DocsBase can do it much quicker because we take the documents to get verified in person, which is a same-day service.

Here’s how the process works: You send the documents to our address in Ottawa. We take them to the DFAIT where they will be verified immediately. We then send the legalized documents back to the address you have provided. Depending on the postage you chose, the whole process can only take a couple days. It is the perfect solution for those who are on a tight deadline or for those who want a fast, secure service.

The general cost for this service is: 75 USD plus tax and shipping costs. Any extra documents for the same order will be at a reduced rate of 50 USD.

Embassy Authentication with DocsBase New York

Canada is not part of The Hague Convention, which means that an Apostille is not an option for authenticating documents for use abroad. Instead, you must get Embassy Authentication. This can be a difficult process, but DocsBase is here to make it a simple one. Because authentication is different for every country, we will find out what is required for the country you intend to use the document in. One thing is certain, you will first have to get your documents legalized through the DFAIT, as we mentioned previously. After that is done, we can help prepare your documents to meet the requirements set by the destination country. Generally, embassy legalization costs 125USD plus taxes and shipping, but pricing may change depending on the destination country.
