Legalize Documents for Egypt
You may be buying or selling land in Egypt, getting married, or your company has business affairs there. Whether it’s personal or business, you will need to provide specific documents. And each of those documents must be certified. We can help you legalize documents for Egypt.
What is Embassy Legalization?
The Hague Convention of 1961 approved the apostille to be used to authenticate documents used between all member countries. Since Egypt is not a member, all paperwork must receive embassy legalization to prove the authenticity of a document.
Documents that often need embassy legalization are:
- Birth certificate
- Marriage license
- FBI background check
- School records
- Certificate of Origin
- Certificate of Good Standing
- Articles of Incorporation
The process for embassy legalization does not differentiate if it is a personal or business document. You must consider whether the document is a state-issued or federally-issued paper.
The Process to Legalize Documents for Egypt
The process to legalize documents for Egypt involves several governmental offices, which we all know means it can take additional time.
- The first step is to obtain the original or certified copy of the document. You can get papers such as birth certificates or marriage licenses from the state and county of origin or VitalCheck online.
- Next, you must determine if the document must be notarized or not. You NEVER notarize a vital document, such as your birth certificate. But you must notarize some paperwork, such as your school records or Articles of Incorporation.
- Now that the required document is ready, if your paper is issued by the state (such as a birth certificate, school records, or Certificate of Good Standing), it must be certified by the Secretary of State. You can skip this step if the federal government issues your document (passport, FBI background check).
- Once you receive the certified document back from the state, it must be authenticated by the US Department of State in Washington, DC.
- And once you wait for the papers to return again, you must now receive embassy legalization from the Egyptian Embassy.
- You must now send each document and the attached embassy legalization form to be translated into Arabic.
That’s a lot of steps for each document. The easier way is to skip steps 3-6 and let One Source Process work with each agency instead.
