The country of Qatar has one Embassy in Washington, D.C. and three consulate offices; Los Angeles, Houston, and New York.
Legalizing documents for Qatar is a multi-step process. The first step is certifying your document with the State. Certifying a document for Qatar is different than an Apostille. Because Qatar is not a member of the Hague Apostille Convention, your documents will also require U.S. Department of State legalization in Washington, D.C. and Embassy or Consulate legalization. Qatar Document Legalization
For example, if your documents are originating from New York (Diploma, Marriage Certificate, Corporate documents, Commercial Invoices, Shipping documents, etc…), you will need New York Department of State certification, U.S. Department of State Certification, and New York Qatar Consulate legalization. Our office in New York and Washington, D.C. have the expertise to complete your documents quickly.
