Legalizations

We offer fast, easy, and secure document legalization, Apostille, translation, and notarization services.

Legalization is a process of document authentication observed by international governments. If you intend to use a US Public Document overseas then local authorities require it to be legalized before it can be considered valid. Each country has its own legalization requirements determined by the type of document being legalized and its intended use.

Common documents that may require legalization are:

  • Academic Certificates
  • Birth, Marriage, and Divorce Certificates
  • Business Contracts
  • Certificates of Incorporation
  • Certificate of No Impediment
  • Documents from British Overseas Territories
  • Export Certificates
  • Religious Documents

Legalization is a multi-step process. Often your document must be legalized by a local or state government, the United States government and at the Embassy of the destination country to be considered genuine and valid.

We can help. Contact our legalization experts at legalization@travisa.com to begin a consultation. We will take the time to understand your legalization needs and work with you step-by-step to ensure you get the right documents in a timely fashion.
