Our office routinely assists individuals who must provide certain Canadian documents to someone in India. The apostille process is quite straightforward, and in order to save time, it is recommended that you retain a third-party authentication and legalization service, like our office, to assist. The first step in the process is for the documents to be authenticated by Global Affairs Canada. Once authenticated we can submit the documents for legalization at the High Commission of India or one of its Consular Offices.

The diplomatic mission of India has started to enforce jurisdiction. In other words, depending upon where the documents originate from within Canada will dictate whether they can be legalized by the High Commission of India, in Ottawa. In the alternative, the documents may have to be legalized at the Consulate General in Toronto or Vancouver.

There are a number of factors that have an impact upon the overall cost of having documents legalized at the High Commission of India. For instance, the number of documents that you have, the type of document(s) that you have as the legalization fees vary, the cost of procuring the money order, whether we can make an appointment to physically attend at the High Commission of India or if return couriers are required.

It is recommended that you reach out to one of our expert staff who specializes in the Canadian apostille process as it relates to the High Commission of India. We would be happy to discuss the authentication and legalization process. We would be more than happy to guide you through the requirements.

Considering the continued impact surrounding Covid-19, the High Commission of India has suspended in person submissions. The High Commission of India remains efficient with the legalization of documents. While they have advised that it could take up to two weeks, we have received our legalized documents back much quicker.

There are many instances when it is more convenient for a client to have documents sent directly to our office as opposed to their receiving them first.  For example, government issued documents such as birth certificates can be sent directly to us.  We can receive them and start compiling a client dossier with the authentication and legalization component to commence once we have all of the documents.
