Do you need your documents certified and legalized for Lebanon?
Certifying and legalizing documents for Lebanon is a three-step process. Your documents must first be certified by the State that issued your documents and then legalized by the U.S. Department of State and the Lebanese 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 Lebanon. This three step process would require your birth certificate to be certified by the California Secretary of State and then certified by the U.S. Department of State before your documents are legalized by the Lebanese Consulate in Los Angeles. This process is necessary in order for the country of Lebanon to accept your documents. If your documents requires notarization (Example: Power of Attorney, Affidavit), then your documents requires notarization, State certification, U.S. Department of State certification and Embassy or Consulate Legalization.
Translation of your documents should always be performed after you receive the State certification, U.S. Department of State certification and Embassy/Consulate legalization. The Lebanese Embassy or Consulate does not require your documents to be written in Arabic. We recommend that you have your documents translated after you receive them from our office.
