Document Authentication for Use in China
When you do business in China, you often need to get some documents notarized/certified at the Chinese Embassy before you can use them in China. The following are few things you want to know before you get started.
- The original documents must be in English. For documents in Chinese, you will have to obtain a translated version in English.
- Those original documents need to be notarized by the clerk of your city or county, then the secretary of your state, then the US Department of State. VMS also provides service to get your documents notarized at US Department of State.
- Please make sure do NOT alter those original/notarized documents in any way.
- Make an online registration.
- Download and fill out the Application form.
- Send all the documents to us along with your payment. Again, please make sure you do not alter those documents, send them to us as they are.
