Do you need to process your documents through the Saudi Arabia Embassy in Washington DC?
The country of Saudi Arabia has one Embassy in Washington, D.C. and three Consulate offices. The Consulate offices are located in Los Angeles, Houston, and New York City.
Note: For the Country of Saudi Arabia, we are currently only processing documents through the Embassy located in Washington DC.
Legalizing documents for Saudi Arabia is a three step process. Some states may require notarized documents to also be authenticated through the County Clerk’s office which will make it four steps to complete. Here is a simple illustration which shows the legalization process.
Depending on the type of document you have, the first step is to either certify it through the Secretary of State’s office or the US Department of State. For example, an authorization letter signed and notarized California will first require the state certification. An FBI background check (Federal document) does not need state certification.
The most common documents we certify and legalize for Saudi Arabia are:
Certificate of Origin
Power of Attorney
Authorization of Agent
Patent and Trademark Documents (USPTO)
FBI Background Check
