Authentication
and Notarial Services

Services include Authentication, Attestation and  Notary Services as well as issuance of Certifications.

The Embassy authentication attests to the genuineness of the signature appearing on the attached certification for the purpose of identifying a specific document and giving credence to the official acts of the notary public or certifying officer thereon for use, if and when required, as instrument of evidence in foreign countries. As such, the Embassy certification/authentication does not, per se, authenticate the validity/efficacy/enforceability of the basic document itself.
