Egypt Embassy and Consulate Legalization

Egypt Document Attestation CertificationDo you need your documents certified and legalized for Egypt?

Certifying and legalizing documents for Egypt is a two-step process. Your documents must first be certified by the State that issued your documents and then legalized by the Egyptian 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 Egypt.  This two step process would require your birth certificate to be certified by the California Secretary of State and then legalized by the Egyptian Consulate in Los Angeles. This process is necessary in order for the country of Egypt 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 Egyptian 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.
