Translation and legalization of documents


Our Consulate does not translate documents directly but legalizes translations already made.

It is not necessary that the translation is done by an official translators, as long it is done in a professional manner this Office can legalize it.

To request the legalization of the translation of a document, you need to send to the general address of the Consulate, attention “Legal department”, the following:

  • Brief cover letter specifying the service requested;
  • Original document (in case of a Vital Record certificate the Apostille is also necessary) and its translation;
  • Money order or cashier’s check made out to “Consulate General of Italy-Los Angeles” for the amount corresponding to Art. 72/A of the Consular Fees list for a sheet of translation from Italian to English and the amount corresponding to Art. 72/B of the Consular Fees list for a sheet of translation from English to Italian (for these purposes, a sheet is made of two faces);
  • Pre-paid, self-labeled envelope with the preferred shipping service for the return of the legalized document to you (i.e. Express or Priority Mail, FEDEX, DHL, etc we do not accept UPS).
