Document Legalization

USILACS Offers State Apostille
and Foreign Legalization Service

Before issuing work permits, work visas, or professional licenses, most foreign countries will require that your education credentials be legally authenticated before they will be accepted in their jurisdiction.

Legalizing education documents has been a highly technical, complex, and confusing process.  However, as of late, since the COVID pandemic and government instability, the legalization process has increased in complexity and frustration exponentially. 

In this ever-changing and unstable geopolitical environment, it is not the time for students to self-serve their education document legalization needs.  Regulations are at times changing on a daily basis, various visa services are disseminating totally false or outdated information, many are also raking in huge fees and still not delivering on the promised legalizations. In today’s world, students need a legalization service that is global, and can fully serve their legalization needs. The other challenge, facing self-serve students, is that most visa services only service a small geographical area. 

USILACS has worked with students for several years to assist them in obtaining apostilles and embassy legalizations.  USILACS has legal representatives, attorneys, relationships, and contacts worldwide. We are experienced in legalizing education documents in challenging countries such as China, Korea, Japan, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Thailand, and many others.  Currently one of the most challenging countries to obtain legalizations for is China.    With USILACS contacts and expertise, USILACS students are not limited to a single embassy or consulate.  With legal professionals, representatives, and visa services all over the world, USILACS has the unique ability to process foreign legalization thru multiple embassies and consulates for a single country.
