Certifying and legalizing documents for Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a multi-step process. These steps consist of State certification, US Department of State certification, and Embassy or Consulate legalization.
Before getting stared, it’s important to note that Bahrain and Oman are both members of the Hague Apostille Convention. Document destined for these countries can only be apostilled by the State office (Example: New York Apostille for Oman). We cannot certify or attest documents for Bahrain or Oman through the U.S. Department of State or the Embassy office because an apostille is sufficient authentication for these two countries.
From our experience, we recommend that you choose to have your documents certified, legalized, and attested for either Saudi Arabia or Kuwait. In order to do this, your documents require State certification, US Department of State certification, and Embassy or Consulate legalization. Certifying and legalizing your documents for Saudi Arabia and Kuwait is the fastest and cheapest way to authenticate your documents for the GCC. We recommend that you contact our office so we can provide you a breakdown in cost and processing time.
