This site is provided by the US Arab Chamber of Commerce in Washington D.C. to facilitate the legalization and certification of documents from the embassy and consulates of Saudi Arabia. and The US Arab Chamber of Commerce has an excellent working relationship with the embassy of Saudi Arabia, and stays up to date on the latest rules and regulations in regards to document legalization.

 
As of June 2014, the embassy of Saudi Arabia adopted new procedures for the certification of all documents except export documents such as C/I and C/O.
The embassy has divided the U.S. into four distinct geographical areas to be serviced by the embassy in D.C. and three consulates general  located in New York, Los Angeles, and Houston.

Now there is a new 4 step process to legalize documents:

  1. Documents must be certified by the secretary of the same state in which they were issued unless they originated from a federal entity such as USPTO, FDA, etc.
  2. Documents must be authenticated by the U.S. Department of State in Washington D.C.
  3. The fee of the embassy/consulate must be paid through Enjaz or an office qualified as an official payment center such as US Arab Chamber of Commerce.
  4. The authenticated documents and the Enjaz payment receipts must be sent to the appropriate embassy or consulate for legalization.

To assist U.S. companies, US Arab Chamber of Commerce can handle the last 3 steps above. Please see the complete details below.
