Chinese Embassy Authentication Services in Canada

Apr 21, 2017

Why Chinese Embassy Authentication is Required?

Nowadays many Canadians travel to China for work in different industries. In most cases, they are required to present to Chinese authorities the authenticated Canadian documents such as the highest degree and a criminal record check certificate in order to apply for a Z work visa. Beside this, the following documents can also be requested to be authenticated: birth, marriage, divorce or death certificates, teaching certificates, fingerprints, powers of attorney and others.

The Chinese Embassy authentication sector’s responsibility is to verify that the Canadian documents intended to be used in China have been legally obtained and are genuine. The Chinese Embassy authentication sector which is located in Ottawa certifies the Canadian documents by placing a special authentication certificate and a seal on the document. Once this process has been finished, the document can now be legally used in China.

Before the Canadian documents can be submitted for Chinese Embassy authentication service in Ottawa, they must undergo the authentication process by the Canadian government services. In Canada, the Global Affairs Canada’s authentication sector is responsible for this process. So, the first step would be to authenticate documents by the federal government-Global Affairs Canada, and the second step would be to authenticate documents by the Chinese embassy authentication sector in Ottawa.

In general, the original documents as well as their notarized copies can be authenticated for official use in China. The notarized copy means that the photocopy of the original document has been notarized by the Canadian notary as a certified true copy. The certified true copies must also undergo the authentication process.

How We Can Assist You

Since the Chinese Embassy authentication sector does not accept documents via mail services, you will have to visit the embassy in Ottawa in person in order to submit the documents for authentication service. Another option would be to appoint the Legalization service Centre in Ottawa to do this work for you. This option is the most convenient if you do not live in Ottawa or if you are currently located in China.
