LEGALIZATIONS

UPV Services offers complete document authentication by the U.S. Department of State in Washington D.C., as well as document legalization by various Embassies.

Every document must go through certain steps to become a legal document in the foreign country.

Steps:
1.   The document should be notarized by a notary public.
2.   The document should be taken to your local Courthouse to certify the notary public is a licensed.
3.   The document should be submitted to the secretary of your state to obtain a certification of the county clerk’s signature.
4.   Send your documents to UPV Services to obtain the State Department seal and then the foreign country’s approval on the documents.

Authentication fees:
a)   State Department seal:   $8.00
b)   UPV Services fee:   $40.00  per document (authentication)
c)   Embassy certification:   Call UPV Services for the correct fee

In order to use UPV Services document authentication and legalization, send us the notarized documents and a cover letter indicating the services you require. If a document needs to be legalized by more than one country, send us a separate original of the document for each country.
