Do you need your documents certified and legalized for Chile?
Certifying and legalizing documents for Chile is a two-step process. Your documents must first be certified by the State that issued your documents and then legalized by the Chile Embassy or Consulate office. If your documents requires notarization, please have them notarized before you mail them in to our office for processing.
For example, let’s say you need your California birth certificate certified and legalized for Chile. This two step process would require your birth certificate to be certified by the California Secretary of State and then legalized by the Chilean Consulate in Los Angeles or San Francisco. This process is necessary in order for the country of Chile 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 Chilean 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.
