Who We Are
AiiAL is an American institution located in Saint Louis, MO, USA and offers three primary services:
- Quality Control Accreditation;
- Education Documents Evaluation;
- Documents Authentication and Legalization
First – Quality Control Accreditation
Our primary goal is to ensure that products and services are safe, reliable and of good quality. For business, they are strategic tools that reduce costs by minimizing waste and errors and increasing productivity. They help companies to access new markets, level the playing field for developing countries and facilitate free and fair global trade.
A Quality Control Certificate with our distinguished AiiAL QC stamp is issued to entities that have successfully passed the QC review. Certification can be a useful tool to add credibility, by demonstrating that your product or service meets the expectations of your customers.
You can choose between becoming nationally accredited or internationally accredited. For national accreditation, the whole process will be completed by your AiiAL member in your country. For International accreditation, you will be dealing with the head office in USA and your certification will be authenticated and legalized at the Department of State in Washington, D.C. You can also request your AiiAL QC certification to be legalized from your foreign embassy in USA.
Second – Education Documents Evaluation
AiiAL helps international students and professionals achieve their educational and professional goals in the United States through evaluating and advocating for the recognition of international education qualifications.
A credential evaluation is a comparison of your academic accomplishments to standards in U.S.A. This report helps institutions like schools, employers, licensing boards, or immigration authorities better understand your educational background.
A report from AiiAL:
- Identifies and describes your credentials
- Verifies that your credentials are authentic
- May include a grade point average (GPA) equivalency
- Includes an evaluation of the authenticity of your documents
- Your AiiAL report will be completed within 15 business days of receipt, review, and acceptance of all documents by AiiAL and payment in full. Rush service is available for an additional fee.
We offer this service at two levels:
Level 1: Learning service providers of non-formal education.
At this level, AiiAL uses different review procedures, including but not limited to, contacting the issuer of the documents to validate the authenticity of the document and the credentials of the issuer.
Level 2: Academic and formal education.
At this level, depending on the purpose of the evaluation request, AiiAL may use an accredited third-party organization to evaluate academic documents.
It is important to note that some government agencies and universities require the evaluation to be done by an accredited member organization of one of the two national associations of credential evaluation services: National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) and Association of International Credentials Evaluators (AICE).
Third – Authentication and Legalization of Documents
International documents that are originated in one country, but are intended for use in another country require embassy legalization to be recognized by the legal system of the foreign country. Embassy legalization is the alternative method for authenticating a document that is utilized for countries that are Non-Hague Convention countries. These countries do not recognize the Apostille as a means to authenticating documents per the 1961 Hague Convention .
The embassy legalization process involves the affirmation of document validity and the documents are evaluated for original signatures, stamp prints, and seals, and are separately deemed as authentic components to support the validity of the paperwork.
AiiAL specializes in handling both the Embassy Legalization and Apostille process for our customers with speed and efficiency through a solid network of service providers across USA.
The process for Embassy Legalization is very much dependent on the type of document and specific requirements of the destination country.
