Changes at the JLAC office of Department of Foreign Affairs

Published on Friday, June 5, 2015

The JLAC office of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFATD) has made changes to their requirements for the authentication of Canadian documents.

As of July 1, 2015 all requests for authentication that are sent by mail must include a completed request form EXT 2165 Form. If the documents are sent without a completed request form, they will be returned without being authenticated.

In addition, you must also include a pre-paid self-addressed return envelope. If the documents are sent without a prepaid return envelope, they will be returned to you by regular mail without being authenticated.

When you need your documents authenticated quickly and are unable to submit them in person, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFATD) recommends that you hire a private service provider like us. We visit the JLAC office at the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFATD) daily to have documents authenticated.

Why wait up to four weeks to have your documents authenticated? We can authenticate your documents in as little as one day! Contact us today to get all the information you need.
