Document Authentication & Legalization Service

This is the typical service that is provided by our office whereby our office will attend on your behalf at either Global Affairs Canada or at Ministry of Government Services (when applicable) to have your documents authenticated, followed by our attendance(s) at the necessary Embassy/Consulate to have your documents legalized.

Depending on your processing requirements, Capital Authentication is able to offer three (3) methods of implementation in order to complete all of your authentication with legalization requests. As each country enforces their own unique provisions, please be sure to confirm the jurisdictional provisions with your consulate office prior to sending us your documents.

Turnaround Times:

  • 3 DAY

This service is intended for clients who ABSOLUTELY require their document(s) to be immediately authenticated and legalized. We MUST receive the document(s) no later than 10:30AM on the day of authentication. Conditions may apply.

  • 5 DAY

This service is intended once again for clients who require their document(s) to be immediately authenticated and legalized; however they have a few more days of flexibility. This service tenders a slightly reduced rate for rush service. Conditions may apply.


We highly recommend this speed of service to our clients, since it is extremely cost-effective, and offers a discounted fixed rate for the first five (5) documents when legalized within the greater Ottawa area.


This is the most economical option we offer at Capital Authentication. This service is designed for clients who do not have any time constraints on the authentication and legalization of their documents. Although we guarantee a ten (10) day turnaround time, we are occasionally able to have your document(s) authenticated, legalized and returned to you in less than this prescribed time.
