Incorporating Services, Ltd (Incserv) specializes in Federal and Embassy services managed by our Washington, DC office. Incserv’s staff is familiar with the intricacies of dealing with various federal agencies and has a vast understanding of the many foreign embassies’ policies and procedures.

Deirdre Davis-Washington, Assistant Vice President of Branch Operations in Washington, DC shares the following news with regards to legalizations:

Brazil, Chile and Morocco have joined The Hague Apostille Convention. These countries no longer require full legalization through the embassy and can go to the Secretary of State for notarized and/or state issued documents and the U.S. Department of State for documents issued by federal agencies. The Apostille certificate will conclude the legalization process and thereby deem your document as ready for use in these countries.
