Canadian educational documents, as well as personal documents, must be processed in a certain way before they can be used in Kuwait.  If you are intent on seeking employment or continuing your studies in Kuwait you will be required to provide some of your personal and educational documents.

Before your documents can be used in Kuwait they must proceed through a process that is known as authentication and legalization.  The authentication and legalization process is the Canadian equivalent of an Apostille.  The first step in the process is having your Canadian documents submitted to Global Affairs Canada for authentication.  The affixing of the authentication stamp will deem your documents to be legitimate for use abroad.  The second step in the process is to have the documents legalized by the Embassy of Kuwait.  With the affixing of the legalization, it will deem your documents to be legitimate for use in Kuwait.

How can Capital Authentication help me with authenticating and legalizing my Canadian educational documents?

Both Global Affairs Canada and the Embassy of Kuwait have very specific requirements that must be met before documents can be authenticated and legalized.  Our office works very closely with the examiners in the authentication section of Global Affairs Canada as well as the consular section of the Embassy of Kuwait.  We are familiar with whether original documents must be used or if notarized copies of documents are acceptable.   By presenting your documents in person at Global Affairs as well as at the Embassy of Kuwait we are able to save you time.   Our services are also very cost-effective.  We would be happy to assist you with the authentication and legalization of your Canadian educational documents.

Should you have any questions about the authentication and legalization process you are invited to contact our office either by e-mail at: or by telephone at: 1 (613) 236-9975.
