We were very happy with the service we received at Capital Authentication. We were applying for visas to Kazakhstan, which ended up being a fairly lengthy and Involved procedure. We had to authenticate and legalize papers, and send papers to Kazakhstan, and then apply for the visas. Capital Authentication helped us through the whole process and were very helpful. We have nothing but good things to say about them. Michael went the extra mile in making sure we got everything done correctly and quickly.
