Do you need your documents attested by the Chinese Embassy in Washington, D.C.?
As the leading document certification and legalization service provider in California and Washington, D.C., we can certify your documents through the State of California, the US Department of State in Washington D.C. and the Chinese Embassy in Washington, D.C.
Certifying and legalizing documents for China is a multi-step process. Your documents will require California State certification, U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C. certification, and China Embassy legalization. Our office currently does not process from any of the Chinese Consulates. The Chinese Embassy in DC accepts all State certified documents. Documents destined for China will receive a certificate from the California State office.
Here is an example of the certification and legalization steps:
Common documents we can certify and legalize for China are:
- Birth Certificates
- Marriage Certificates
- Death Certificates
- Divorce Decree
- Single Status Affidavit
- Background Checks (Local, State, FBI)

The Chinese Embassy also offers expedited service. The current fee charged by the Chinese Embassy is $25 for personal documents and $50 for business documents. Also, the Chinese Embassy offers the opportunity to expedite the processing of your documents in two business days for an additional cost. We recommend all of our clients expedite their documents through the Embassy in order to avoid lengthy delays.
