Saudi Arabian Document Legalization & Authentication:

  • Step 1: Make sure your document is notarized by a local notary public unless it is an original certified copy/certification issued by a competent Federal/State/local office.
  • Step 2: The document must then be authenticated by the Secretary of the State where it is executed. Some states require documents to be certified by the County Clerk first.  For Federally issued certifications, skip this step and go directly to Step 3
  • Step 3:  All legal documents need to be attested by the U.S. Department of State prior to sending them to the Saudi Arabia Embassy.
