The "chain authentication process"

A series of authorities will affix a succession of seals beginning with your document and ending with the seal of the requisite Embassy.We take extra efforts to manage the entire process so our clients don’t have to worry about it. However, it can help to have a broad sense of the process.

The process or steps required for your document/s is determined by two factors–destination country AND document type.

The Process
