  • Document Authentication Service for China & the UAE >

    We provide a service that no other recruiter provides, and that service is document authentication! This service is comprehensive and tailored to the region that the teacher will be working. Currently, we offer document authentication for China and the UAE. We do the entire process - from notarization all the way to embassy authentication.

    We've seen many teachers struggle to get their documents authenticated, or they do it incorrectly and hold up the hiring process. We started offering this service to help teachers successfully transition from living in the U.S. to living in Asia and the UAE, and we've successfully authenticated hundreds of documents so far.

    Many schools work with us and send their teachers to us in regards to document authentication because they trust us to get it taken care of efficiently and correctly. As of right now, we can authenticate documents for teachers that hold a U.S. passport.

    Document authentication service benefits:

     We can also run background checks for people that are overseas

     Less work for schools (no need to explain the process, just send the teachers to us)

     This speeds up the visa process immensely

     Teachers can start working sooner (our service saves you time and stress!)

     Centralized recruitment process
