What you need to know about document legalization for the Peoples Republic of China

Published on Wednesday, December 10, 2014

You should be aware that the embassies and consulates of the Peoples Republic of China in Canada will not accept any documents submitted by mail, even if they are sent directly from the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFATD). Any documents requiring legalization by the Peoples Republic of China in Canada must be submitted in person.

Consular jurisdiction with the Peoples Republic of China in Canada is also quite strict. The origin of your documents will determine whether your documents need to be authenticated by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFATD) in Ottawa or by the appropriate provincial body. Once your documents have been authenticated, you need to determine which embassy or consulate holds jurisdiction for the legalization portion of the process.

For embassy and consulate jurisdictions and locations, visit the website of the Embassy of the Peoples Republic of China in Canada.
