Best Messenger walks your documents into the State Department immediately, with no advance notice required. We process and return them to you or forward them to the embassy if you wish, as soon as they are ready for pickup.
We can also retrieve your documents from the embassy and return them to you as soon as they are ready for pickup.
The authentications office at the U.S. State Department closes daily at 9:00am. We will file any documents that arrive before 8:00am on the same day; others will be processed by the next business day.
ATTENTION (by order of the U.S. State Department)

Be sure to enclose your payment for the US State Department and, if applicable, the embassy. Our prices do not include the fees charged by the State Department and embassies.
The State Department charges $8.00 per document, and accepts personal checks. Embassies charge different amounts and accept different forms of payment.
Some embassies require copies of all documents submitted for processing. If we are to forward your documents to an embassy after authentication at the State Department, please include copies of all documents to be submitted, to avoid extra charges.
We are couriers, not paralegals or a visa/passport service. The customer is responsibile for determining whether the documents submitted will be accepted by the U.S. Secretary of State. For further information, check with the U.S. Secretary of State, your state government's Secretary of State or with the embassy.
