All documents must be lawfully certified and authenticated in accordance with regulations in the country or region where the document originates. In certifying each document, the certifying official must include his or her full name in all capital letters, state the official capacity of action and include the official’s address and phone number as well as an e-mail address if applicable. When a notary public certifies a document to be a true copy of an original, validation by an apostille usually is required.
Applications will be checked for accuracy. Information that is not 100% true is cause for rejection.
