How to submit an order

  1. First, make a high quality color scans for all the documents you will need to authenticate. For your University Degree, TEFL Certificate, and local/state level Criminal Records Check, all we need is a scan.

  2. Fill out the online order form by clicking the Order Now button at the bottom of this page. You can upload all your scanned documents to the order form. For FBI Checks If you received a digital copy directly from the FBI or an FBI channeler,  you can upload that pdf to the order form.  Photocopies, scans, or screenshots are not accepted by the State Department.  If only received a copy through the mail then we will need that copy mailed to our office.  NOTE: If your FBI is password protected please type the password in the special instructions section.
