The process of certifying documents for countries that are not members of the Hague Convention is called legalization. It is done through either the embassy or consulate of the country for which your documents are destined. Same as an apostille, embassy/consular authentication deals in both personal and corporate documents.
The process of certificate embassy attestation in the United States generally involves the following steps:
1. State certification.
2. Certified by the U.S.Department of State.
3. Embassy/consulate legalization.
State-level documents require state certification before being authenticated by the U.S Department of States,and documents issued by the Federal government can bypass this step.
Depending on which country your documents are intended for use, additional requirements might apply and the processing time varies. For instance, the Vietnamese embassy in the U.S require all requested documents to be notarized by a notary republic and authenticated by the local State department before being submitted to the embassy for legalization, and processing takes 5-7 working days, whereas the China embassy offers same day, 3 days and 4 days options. Notarization and authentication are also required by the Libia embassy and Chinese embassy in the United States. Some countries may ask you to have your documents translated into their languages.
