Brazil is not a member of the Hague Apostille Convention (Convention of 5 October 1961 Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents). Documents being sent to this country require State, US Department of State (If required), and Brazil Embassy or Consulate legalization. This two or three step process is necessary in order for the country of Brazil to accept your documents.
Here is an illustration to help explain the three process better:
We can certify documents issued from any US State including documents issued by the US Federal Government.
