Do you need to legalize your documents through the Cuba Embassy in Washington DC?
Are you planning on getting married in Cuba and need your birth certificate, single status affidavit, and certified divorce decree (If previously married) legalized for this country? Are you planning on doing business in Cuba?
Certifying and legalizing documents for Cuba is a three step process. Your documents will require State certification, US Department of State certification, and Embassy legalization. For example, if your birth certificate originates from the State of California, your document will require California Secretary of State certification, Washington DC US Department of State certification, and Cuba Embassy legalization.
Here is an illustration to help explain the process:
Office Hours: Monday – Saturday 9am – 6pm
Customer Support: 1-800-850-3441
The Cuban Embassy requests that all documents include a certified Spanish translation to accompany your documents. The translation needs to be performed by a certified translator and the translator’s signature needs to be signed and notarized. You can find a certified translator by contacting the American Translator’s Association.
The Cuban Embassy also charges $300 for every document legalized through the Embassy. If you need your birth certificate and single status certified and legalized, the Embassy will charge $600 to process these two documents. Also, you will need to include a USPS money order payable to the ‘Embassy of the Republic of Cuba’.
Legalizing documents for Cuba can be complicated and time-consuming. Don’t leave this process to untrained employees or non-professionals who do not fully understand the legalization process and the unique requirements of this country. Your paperwork could be rejected costing you time and money. Don’t let this happen to you!
