Ethiopia Authentication

*** The Ethiopian Embassy currently only allows documents to be delivered and returned using UPS overnight shipping. Allied and all other services are no longer able to hand deliver documents directly to the embassy. Due to this additional expense we need to apply a one time $50 charge to your order.

Ethiopia will only accept fully authenticated and legalized documents

    What you do:


  • Notarize your document by a public notary
  • Forward your document to the Secretary of State where the notary public was commissioned

  • What we do:


  • Upon completion by the Secretary of State forward your documents to Allied Passport for authentication by the US State Department
  • After completion by the State Department, Allied Passport will obtain your document authentication from the embassy completing the legalization
  • Once completed by the embassy your document(s) are ready for use

Processing times:

The State Department take 4 business days with no rush service available.

Embassy processing varies but typically expect 4 business days also.


Embassy Authentication Fee $ 94.80 per document
U.S. State Department Authentication Fee $  8.00 per document
Allied Passport Fee $ 49.00 per document
** Inbound and Outbound Ethiopian Embassy UPS Shipment Fee $ 50.00 one time charge
