Earlier this year, we provided a federal services update that included legalization news and notes from around the world. Today, we’re sharing a few new developments. 


The Embassy of Egypt has stated that the notary’s dry seal must be next to the signature on any document that is being submitted for legalization or authentication and not on a separate paper.


After conceding to the Hague Convention, The Embassy of China will no longer require authentication from the U.S. Department of State and/or legalization with the embassy. After November 7, 2023, documents destined for China should be accepted with an Apostille.

United Arab Emirates

The Embassy of the United Arab Emirates no longer requires Corporate documents to go through the U.S. Department of State. Only personal documents must go through the U.S. Department of State for processing.

With a dedicated, knowledgeable staff in our Washington, D.C. office, we’re ready to support authentications, legalizations and a variety of other federal services needs. To get started, contact info@incserv.com or call 800-346-4646.
