Authentication of Documents

A Vietnam document being used outside the country, for personal or business affairs, must go through the two step process of authentication and legalization to make it valid. This applies to documents such as a Birth Certificate, Marriage Certificate, Degree, Police Check, Power of Attorney, Certificate of Incorporation, Certificate of Origin. Ask us about your document we help authenticate all types of Vietnamese documents for use internationally.

Another commonly used method outside of Vietnam to have a document validated is using an Authentication Service, which is done in any country who has signed the Consular Certificate Convention. As Vietnam has not signed the Apostille Convention and does not use Apostille Certificates, it uses the internationally recognized equivalent that starts with the first step of authentication of documents.

With No Apostille in Vietnam who authenticates documents?

The Department of Foreign Affairs, located close to our office in Vietnam is responsible for the first step of authentication. Once they verify that the signature on your document is valid, by checking in their registry, they will affix their stamp, seal and signature. Before doing this there are certain restrictions and guidelines that do apply to your document, but not to worry our consultation with you guarantees that it does. To help you confirm your document is ready to be authenticated use our Quick & Easy Verification on our page. We can shorten this to as quick as 1 day, these are only two of the many benefits of using our service.
