The normal process as for Apostille will be followed but a Authentication certificate will be issued instead of a Apostille. The documents look the same and are affixed to the document to be Authenticated in the same way.


PROCESS:

• We prepare the documents.

• Payment of relevant fees. ( Some embassy's only accept EFT while others only accept cash or bank guaranteed cheque's.

• Lead times are between 2 and 5 working days. It is important to note that foreign country embassy's have additional holidays as well as religious holidays in addition to South African Holidays.
