Do you need your documents certified and legalized for Bolivia?
Certifying and legalizing documents for Bolivia is a two-step process. Your documents must first be certified by the State that issued your documents and then legalized by the Bolivian Embassy or Consulate. If your documents requires notarization, please have them notarized before you mail them in to our office for processing.
For example, lets say you need your New York birth certificate certified and legalized for Bolivia. This two step process would require your birth certificate to be certified by the New York Department of State and then legalized by the Bolivian Consulate. This process is necessary in order for the country of Bolivia to accept your documents. If your documents requires notarization (Example: Power of Attorney, Affidavit), then your documents requires notarization, State certification, and Embassy or Consulate Legalization.
Translation of your documents should always be performed after you receive the State certification and Embassy/Consulate legalization. The Bolivian Embassy or Consulate does not require your documents to be written in Spanish. We recommend that you have your documents translated after you receive them from our office.
