US Legalization typically refers to legalizing your U.S. documents through State, U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C., and the Embassy or Consulate office.
Countries who are members of the Hague Apostille Convention only require the state or federal apostille. For non-member countries (see below), the processing time and cost will increase.
The following countries listed below are not members of the Hague Apostille Convention and any document requested by these countries will receive a certification. Please note that the countries listed below will require additional legalization by the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C. and the Consulate or Embassy office.
