We know all about the Embassy and Consulate Legalization process

Embassy or Consular legalization is a method of authenticating a document for use in another country not part of the Hague Convention. This document is taken to the Embassy or Consulate for the Embassy Stamp/Seal and or Signature of the Consul.

All documents issued by the State and or notarized documents first require:
  1. Secretary of State Certification (Takes about 2-10 business days to be certified)
  2. Authentication by the US Department of State (Takes an estimated 3-4 business days)
  3. Embassy legalization (Takes an estimated 5-10 business days)
All documents issued by a federal entity requires:
  1. U.S Department of State Authentication (Takes an estimated 3-4 business days)
  2. Embassy Legalization (Takes an estimated 5-10 business days)
Elite Documents Services can physically present your FBI background check to the US Department of State, making the process faster and more secure.  Currently the US Department of State Apostille service is taking an average of 3-4 business days for your FBI background check to be Apostilled.
